Handmade Jewellery Inspired by African narratives and Myths

Using simple tools – the hammer, the torch, the drill - to shape the silver in patterns echoing those seen in textile and sculptures in Congo, M.Kala creates statement pieces of jewellery that have a rough but tactile beauty. "Sand and Fire" is her first collection...

M.Kala is a silversmith & jeweller who lives and works in London.

Creating is a process in which the artist hopes to find the bounds between her, history and the world. 

In the "land of the palm", a poetic name for Congo,  the cycle of life ressembles the cycle of sun - a perpetual new beginning.  Simple, repetitive patterns hide complex intent.
