If you know me well, you’ll know that I’m all for women entrepreneurs and generally, people finding their passion and running with it. She now calls herself my BFF, but before we got there, Tonka, lead designer of Tonka Designs recently emailed me about an African print jewelry line she has been working on. I thought I’d file this under #ThursdayTalent, something I’ve been doing on my Instagram page where I hunt down artisans and other talented folks and share their work. Here is a brief bio from the lead designer herself.
“Tonka’s designs is about putting the positive energy to use, allowing creativity to express itself through rich African ankara fabrics. Tonka’s designs is about passion and self discovery. We are dedicated to creating pieces that would delight you and exceed your expectations. We just want to express the beauty that lies in our African heritage. We promise to get you the ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ from your friends!”
This (top) has to be my favorite piece!
