I had so much fun doing a photo shoot for my friend Jura who runs a business making gorgeous handmade jewellery out of sustainable palm seed beads from Ecuador. Working with the locally sourced palm seeds, she integrates silver beads from Sudan and recycled aluminium beads from Ecuador and makes the most stunning necklaces.
Tala, which means ‘palm tree’ in Arabic, is fitting as all of the seeds Jura sources come from different types of palm trees. It just so happens that she also has a gorgeous dog named Tala, who she adopted when they lived in Sudan before this business came to be. Tala came to assist us at the photo shoot and was the perfect model.
Jura’s stunning friend, Sara Granjam, really made the shoot as she was the perfect person to model these amazing necklaces. She was a complete natural and made the whole photo shoot super fun and easy. Thanks Jura and Sara for a great morning out together!
