ABOUT THE ARTISAN
Asandé is derived from the Congolese word ‘Azande’, meaning, “a people who possess much land.” Founded in 2017 by Georgi Kapepula, Asandé seeks to help restore and rebuild the lives of those tormented by war and sexual violence in the DRC.
The Courage Collection, Asandé’s inaugural jewellery collection, is ethically made and sourced from Cape Town, South Africa. A removable and interchangeable pearl pendant is featured in several pieces to bring recognition to women’s courage in the face of adversity.
When an oyster swallows a grain of sand, it eases its pain by applying a coat of nacre (pearl). Ironically, from this healing process, something so beautiful is created out of much discomfort. The pearl symbolises the journey of many survivors of the DRC civil war, evoking an aura of courage, strength, healing, and tenacity despite hardship.
Thirty-percent of each Asandé purchase directly supports a project in Kinshasa, DRC run by The Mother’s Union that teaches women how to rebuild their lives through business.
