A creative at heart, Nonthu, took the plunge to follow her artistic passions in 2018. Shuffling her work life as a domestic cleaner to work weekends, she freed her weekdays to take a 3month course at Learn to Earn, the same incredible NGO as Nontembe trained through... It was through Learn to Earn, that I was introduced to Nonthu to consider for SOUL Design in early 2019.
Also originally from the Eastern Cape, Nonthu moved to Cape Town when she was 10 years old with her mother after her parents separated. Nonthu has a beautiful, warm energy and often uplifts SOUL Design with her wise words and positive take on life. Her main focus is beadwork, in particular, creating carefully made Juju Bracelets for our collections. She also oversees our newer offering of gold plating pieces within our collections.
“For me, work now has a purpose. I'm just happy to be here.”
