Vicky Chignall arrived in Kenya in 1972 where she lived with the Masai Mara. Today her jewelry workshop is tucked deep in the farm country northwest of Nairobi. She is inspired by the tribal jewelry, beads and accents she has collected – some of it centuries old. While many Africans are adopting Western fashions, westerners have come to appreciate the authentic beauty of native African ornaments.
