These colorful beaded birds were made by either Darlington Dofo or John Makwinja.
John, 34, is from Zimbabwe. He’s been in South Africa for 14 years but he still misses Zim where “the sun shines differently.” Although he misses his home country, he is happy that he is still in Africa.
Darlington, 36, is from Zimbabwe. He came to South Africa to find work. Although he feels limited as a foreigner, South Africa provides the opportunity to do the beading he loves. “I like wire art,” he says. And what animal does Darlington love to bead most? “I love the zebra. The zebra is my tradition.”
