Looking through magazines and browsing bustling markets such as the popular Balogun Market one thing is clear: African jewellery has many forms and are made in different materials and fabrics. There are rows and rows of stalls waiting to be discovered filled with jewellery created out of a mixture of fabrics. That made me think: Are some jewellery pieces more ‘African’ than others? Would we think that a dainty set of sterling silver earrings could be African in origin when set next to a coral necklace? Will we be right in thinking that a necklace made out of wood and cotton fabric was created by an African artisan and not in a workshop nestled in a sleepy European town? Does it really matter to us if it is African or not?
