ARTISAN OF THE MONTH
Emanuel | I met Emanuel one afternoon on the roadside in Illovo, Johannesburg. Unlike other hawkers, Emanuel was beading whilst displaying his beaded flowers in cracks in the pavement. The potholes had a purpose and the beaded flowers brightened up the pavement. I loved it! Emanuel is proud of his skill and committed to earning an income. Despite having to go home for a few months last year when he fell ill, Emanuel kept in touch. He is now back in Illovo and enthusiastic about new designs. He and his team bead King Protea, Strelitzia, utensil holder and the Antelope head we sell. We are now working on wire lighting designs which I hope will be a success for Emanuel.
Emanuel has an exceptional eye for quality and so enjoys developing new product. He is committed to delivering a quality product and his turn around is quick. It is a pleasure and privilege to work with Emanuel.
