Meet Innocence

Innocence lives in a squatter camp in Hout Bay. He makes a living making bead ornaments which he hawks to tourists like me. He tells me he is part of a community of bead and wire craftspeople who share their ideas and designs. Currently they are focussing on Christmas themed articles. His mother and sister are also beadworkers.He sometimes makes bigger individual designs which he sells at street markets.
