Jiona Story & Symbolism
Jiona is a Swahili name that means “to glow with pride”. Recycled glass beads, linked with soft cotton cord, form a versatile collection of easy-to-wear jewellery that will instantly liven any look from day to night. The beads are commonly known as trade beads following their use between the 16th and 20th century as a form of currency. They have also been used for over 400 years as symbols of maturity, wealth, beauty, social status and identity.
