The Mali necklace is part of the Pichulik Play Collection which is synonymous with a distinctive, African design aesthetic, showcasing explosive colour, striking tribal and geometric motifs and statement silhouettes. Inspired by the dynamic colour combinations and beaded patterns of sub-Saharan African tribal jewellery, as well as the tactile textile arts of Sheila Hicks, the distinguishing features are loop-style rope configurations in woven static and dynamic rope, embellished with contrast wrapping and beadwork. This collection is a celebration of colour and statement sculptural form. Mali is a land known for intricate woodcarving and elaborate masks. Inspired by earthy tones, wild nature and artistic ritual, this glamourous neckpiece reflects the power of the Mali empire during the 15th century.
Pichulik is an ethical jewellery, accessories atelier based in Cape Town, South Africa. Rooted in Africa, and inspired by ancient traditions and cultures around the world, PICHULIK seeks to impart sacred feminine wisdom through its unique and intentional designs.
