African Creations, Treasures and Finds

Painting Your Wings Creations, Treasures and Finds brings you the vibrant expression of culture, heritage, custom and beauty inspired and created by women across the African continent- from the small and beautiful hand painted clay beads made by a women’s cooperative in Nairobi, Kenya; intricate ornaments and jewelry sold by Maasai women in the bustling markets of Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania; to women artists and jewelry designers from the valley of thousand hills in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

Painting Your Wings is committed to showcasing the work of small and micro-enterprises run by women. Most items are hand made and individually collected on our travels in Africa.
