MY (USHANGA)' ED LIFE

hae loves...


so if you ever read my blog you know i am currently in Narok County and i am so in love with the community here. My mum thinks i will get engaged to a man of this beautiful people, i don't even mind :)


anyway...


i decided to feature some pieces associated with the community from my favorite vendor who chose to remain out of all the pictures i got to take...




Commonly referred to as Maasai Jewelry or ''ushanga pieces''

Ushanga is Swahili name for beads.



My favorite bangle...



NECKPIECE


NECKLACES



The Maasai just like any other culture have jewelry for specific duties or to symbolize a stage, like there are pieces only worn by married women, elders and an engaged girl, i am hoping to learn more about this and hopefully blog about it soon.

SHOES, MALE BELTS AND MORE NECK PIECES


HEAD BAND



My friend (longer hair) and me rocking a Maasai piece at the Bow tie Events (the elegance affair) last year.




thank you for stopping by :)

XOXO

  1. I love your neckpiece in this last photo. I love Narok too. Their jewellery pieces are way cheaper than those sold in Maasai Market in Nairobi
