The Hands that Bead

If you love the ethnic style that is a hallmark of this spring/summer's looks, here's an idea. Instead of relying on the High Street for a dodgy imitation, go to the source. Shops that sell FairTrade items and eBay offers an excellent range, from new to antique. The earrings above are made by the Tuareg, a nomadic people of the Sahara.

Or from the Transkei in South Africa, come beads like these.
