Something For the Men….

Lukagwa has been designing African jewelry for women for the longest time with little regard to the male folk.The idea of not catering for men was triggered by the level of tweaking or modification we had to do on the simplest accessories.It was simply exhausting.Regardless of this fact we made several attempts at making chains and bracelets for them.Currently we are working on cuff links, a concept we initialized 3 years back.We are continuously  perfecting our prototypes.I will share with you photos of our varied prototypes so you can experience our Journey and contribute to it.

The Legendary Artisan- Alan Donovan

“To those outside its magnetic spell, Africa may seem
incomprehensible, fathomless, in the primordial past. Yet,
wherever we are in the world, everyone one of us had an African
ancestor, that much is almost certain. Africa is the cradle
of humanity….. As a co-founder of African Heritage, the
continent’s first Pan African Gallery, in Nairobi, Kenya, I
discovered Africa’s rich legacy to the world’s art….. I served
as a conduit and catalyst to reveal the awesome beauty of
Africa to its visitors and to others around the world” by Alan Donovan.

I was humbled to be hosted by the renowned Alan Donovan of African Heritage in his stunning Timbuktu Castle.He lay the foundation and passed on knowledge that trickled down and influenced numerous creatives.Alan’s passion and creativity in African art was my first point of contact with the World of Art.I was a frequent visitor of the African Heritage at Libra House .All the accessories mesmerized me,i imagined one day creating jewelry equally as beautiful.Today i got the opportunity to exchange ideas with this amazing creative,the experience was priceless.

Creativity is a journey in which the people you meet inspire you to do things differently…….be part of our cruise on http://www.etsy.com/shop/lukagwa.
