Welcome to this Epic Inspiration Jewellery Design Challenge and Blog Hop!

Thank you so much Melissa, for organizing this Hop…
I had a lot of fun watching films and movies, you gave me a great time
And then came the moment  I had to chose one…
In The Netherlands we have a lot of different  -new- great shows on TV,
but… we have had some epic TV in the past as well!
And so I chose a movie I was quite impressed by in the eighties…   
A movie of the life of the King of the Zulu’s, Shaka Zulu.
What an impressive story and what an impressive cast as well!

Wikipedia gives a lot!!! of information about Shaka’s life.
Here’s his story; 

Shaka was raised mostly by Nandi, his mother.
If it was not for her Shaka would have never grown into the man he became.
Nandi was queen mother of the Zulu’s.
Her death had a profound effect
on Shaka and he never recovered from her death.  He went into a deep
stage of mourning, depression and erratic behavior.
This is ‘Nandi’ in the movie:

The picture inspired me to design this necklace
Happy hopping!

  1. Very nice! I really like the bold look of it. Something a king or queen would wear! Thanks for posting!

  2. what a beautiful necklace, the design is well balanced and so pretty.

  3. Beautiful necklace, I'd wear it for sure and without a doubt Nandi would love it! I remember this powerful epic show.

  4. You have just given me another show to add to the list of things to watch (if I could find it)! Your design is a vivid creation of what inspired you to make it. It all comes together in a rather organic manner - color, texture, natural elements. I just want to run my fingers over those carved beads! Very well done.

  5. This sounds like such an interesting show. Now I want to watch it! I love the style and look of your piece, so rustic and tribal. The beads have a great look and feel to me. Beautiful!

  6. Oh I remember that show years ago -- it was quite impressively epic wasn't it! Love the necklace, captures the feeling of the show! Thanks for joining the blog hop!

  7. A strong beautiful necklace for a strong beautiful queen. Perfect!

  8. Your necklace is beautiful and has the kind of vibe that I love.

  9. I always love the beauty of your pieces, you have an artistic gift of combining an assortment of beads in an assortment of shades that just scream Luxurious Fabulosity!!!
