Nkulu is an independent beader whose beadwork supports his mother and entire extended family. Nkulu’s “Gogo” (the Zulu word for grandmother) taught him how to create pieces of art from beads. This passed down skill facilitates a livelihood for not just himself, but his entire family. In 2011, Nkulu helped bead the wedding dress for Princess Charlene of Monaco for her South African wedding celebration in Durban. Nkulu is currently studying to be a traditional healer and dreams of helping people heal their hearts. We are grateful he is a part of our Sidney Byron family.
