CULTURAL ART WITH AFRICAN SPIRIT

Your cultural artwork made by the local African tribes with leather and beads, created into handbags and then the most beautiful beaded baskets express real African spirit imprinted into most decorative articles.  It makes Africa come into my home.  The quality of the leather and traditional beadwork is unique and its bountiful playfulness expresses the African spirit.

ABOUT CELIA IN AFRICA

My name, Celia, is from Latin descent, and a common Spanish name, which means “of the heavens, heavenly or musical”.  Zulu name has been given to me by a Shaman (African Medicine Man) I once met.  In ancient language the name is “Qhwebezani” and as he explained, the translation for that as direct as possible means “shining light” which refers to the shimmering blue-green color you find in an oyster shell or the wings of a Starling.
