Trunk Show: Beloved Beadwork

@ Museum Shop

Join us for Beloved Beadwork’s trunk show at NMWA, and meet the artist behind these unique designs.

As part of NMWA’s Empowering Women through Art shop initiative, NMWA and the Embassy of the Republic of South Africa welcomes Beloved Beadwork designer and founder Anna Richerby from Cape Town, South Africa, for a trunk show and designer “meet and greet” in the NMWA Museum Shop.


Founded in 2009, this small company of 12 Cape Town women creates intricate pieces of high-end jewelry, using complex weaving techniques and glass beads. Richerby designs the company’s necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings while providing sustainable, flexible jobs for talented local bead workers in South Africa.

Beloved Beadwork’s jewelry has been exhibited at the South African National Gallery and Design Indaba, as well as featured in the accessory collections at South African Fashion Week.
