Zimbabwean glass bead Octopus decoration. The octopus is said to represent intelligence and the overcoming of difficulties making it a meaningful gift.

The colourful glass beads reflect the light of the sun, giving it the appearance of glistening jewels.

This little decoration has a sturdy hoop attachment designed to create a vast and versatile range of uses. Dangle it from your bag, window, ceiling, door, or combine with our other hanging decorations to create your own artistic display. Place it on a shelf or desk to use as a unique ornament.

A collaborative piece combining our exclusive design, and the expert skills of our artisans in Zimbabwe.

Using phenomenal skill and craftsmanship, each dazzling bead was individually placed by hand. Thoughtfully constructed with decorative glass beads and wire, a lot of time and skill has gone into bringing it to life. 

Jonathan - known as Jones - and his brother Bernard, started their beadwork craft business in 1985. They began their business in Chitungwiza, just outside Harare in Zimbabwe. They started making wire toys for themselves and overtime other parents ordered toys for their children. This inspired and motivated them to challenge their abilities.

Our co-founder, Bee, met Jones in 1996 in Hackney, London when he travelled there to set up a stall with his brother to sell their beaded products in Covent Garden.
