Monkeybiz Beaded Artworks

Monkeybiz Beaded Artworks

The Monkeybiz social enterprise is dedicated to reviving the tradition of African Beadwork, taking the love and knowledge that is passed down, over the centuries, from mother to child and becoming a bridge from traditional bead works into contemporary artworks. Through its endeavours, Monkeybiz has lifted over 450 women and their families out of poverty. Each Monkeybiz artwork is unique and is signed by the artist so they gain recognition for their work. All of the profits from the sales of artworks are reinvested back into community services, including weekly soup kitchens, yoga, drama, as well as a burial fund for artists and their families. Beading techniques are ancient form of jewellery making which is why MAVEN & I is proud to be supporting the work of Monkeybiz. No two artworks are the same.  Either you can buy an artwork which is in stock. Or you can order a Monkeybiz Artwork in the colours that you like, but because they are bespoke, they are slightly more expensive.  A price will be confirmed at the time of ordering.
