Pembetatu Earrings

These Pembetatu pendant earrings made by hand from glass beads.

Pembetatu :: Triangle 

The triangle, or pembetatu, decorates the painted faces of young Maasai boys on their journey into adulthood, and features in silver charms that hang from beaded adornments worn by Maasai women.

Symbols are a visual representation of philosophy, and the triangle is one that can be used to convey balance. We dedicate this collection to the pembetatu to symbolize our hopes to balance preserving traditional Maasai beadwork with bringing a contemporary aesthetic to our designs.

Your chosen piece is 100% handmade by one of the 120 Maasai beaders in Tanzania, so no two pieces will ever be exactly the same. With different hands crafting each piece, we celebrate the uniqueness of the slight irregularities and differences between them, truly making them one of a kind. 

Made with love in Tanzania.
