$12 Macalania Nut Keychain

THE GREATER WATERBERG LANDSCAPE COLLECTION

 

GW-06: Macalania Nut Keychain (CCF Arts & Crafts) 

 

Material : Vegetable Ivory, Macalania nut.

 

These are crafted from the nut of the Makalani palm, a tree that is endemic to the Northern regions of Namibia. The nuts are traditionally utilised by the Owambo Peoples who live in Northern Namibia, but the nuts are widely distributed throughout Namibia. The process of creating the pieces is done by sustainably collecting fallen nuts, peeling the outer layer of the nut, and carving the inner hard core. At CCF, running cheetahs and cheetah faces are cleverly carved into these nuts, which are then made into necklace pendants and keyrings, secured with leather and twine.

 

The purchase of craft products supports Cheetah Conservation Fund's (CCF) community based initiative to help improve livelihoods in rural communities, while supporting CCF's ongoing research,education, and conservation programmes in Namibia. CCF jewelry products are sourced and created by various Namibian and South African women, inspired by and crafted from rich traditional and cultural practices, made from naturally found materials.

Special Instructions: Each piece of jewelry is one-of-a-kind. Purchasing Namibian craft jewelry not only provides sustainable income and an alternative livelihood for the people of Namib-ia, but also supports the continuation of traditional craft-making practices.

SB-02: Ostrich Eggshell Necklace

 

Assorted styles Each piece of jewelry is one-of-a-kind. Purchasing Namibian craft jewelry not only provides sustainable income and an alternative livelihood for the people of Namib-ia, but also supports the continuation of traditional craft-making practices. The San Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert in Namibia apply their traditional skills to create jewelry, often with natural resources and materials available to them. Largely isolated from colonialism until the last century, San Bushmen women create intricate pieces of jewelry using wild seeds, pieces of tree roots, horns, bone, leather, tortoise shell and most importantly, beads created from ostrich eggshell.

 

Ostich Eggshell Jewelry - According to archaeological studies, ostrich eggshell bead making is over a 40,000 year old tradition. Ostrich egghsell jewelry has been worn as ornamentation and often given as gifts for thousands of years. The process to create the intricate jewelry is very time consuming, as each bead is hand made by the San Bushmen.

 

The San Bushmen are the oldest inhabitants of Africa and many still maintain a similar lifestyle to that of their ancestors from thousands of years ago. Ostrich eggs are broken into shards and then further broken into smaller pieces. Each piece is then hand shaped into beads using handmade tools specifically for the job. Finally, they are strung onto a rolled sinew thread and rubbed down to smooth and polish them. Bushman Artisans use natural dyes to color the beads in different shades of black and brown.

$125 CHEETAH by Mark Segal

This amazing Cheetah book by renowned fashion photographer Mark Segal.

 

Book bound in Italy and measures about 14" x 10". 

 

Segal's celebration of this regal feline also records the cheetah's alarming path toward extinction.

 

"For the past 15 years, American photographer Mark Segal’s fascination with the world’s fastest land mammal has taken him across the US, Europe, Kenya, Namibia, and South Africa. What started out as an aesthetic obsession evolved as he deepened his understanding of this fierce yet fragile creature and its rapid path toward extinction. “My desire changed from simply wanting to experience cheetahs for my own selfish curiosity to wanting to contribute to their conservation.”

 

Segal has traveled to various cheetah research and conservation centers, in an effort to show the beauty of this magnificent predator and to draw awareness to its endangered state in the wild. Known for his moody and emotional portrait and fashion work, Segal takes a personal approach to photographing nature, employing a vision that differs distinctly from most wildlife photographers.

 

The images collected in this monograph, designed by Fabien Baron, stand at a waypoint in Segal’s elusive and ongoing odyssey toward a deeper understanding of this regal feline and the mysterious hold it has on him. His wish is that viewers will be captivated as he is by the beauty of the cheetah and will recognize the imperative to protect the animal and ensure its survival on our planet.

 

Donated by longtime friend and supporter Mark Segal.
