"In the spirit of the celebration of women, I want you to meet an amazing and inspiring AFRICAN woman Nneka. She contacted me and was wondering if I would profile her project. When she sent it to me I was blown away and reminded of the fact that no one can fully understand the beauty, strength and magic of the BLACK GIRL
ENJOY this article and the vibrant pictures"- Stella Damasus


As a Nigerian born, visiting Ghana for the very first time last December was an amazing experience for me. The series "beads and braids" was something I fell in love with while in Ghana. Every chance I had I was wearing different styles of traditional cornrow braids and I wanted the whole world to experience the beauty through me. 
The beads added a classic and traditional look, and I want everybody to know beads are still in style and always will be. I personally picked the hairstyle and brought back beads for each model. This series was to give New face models a platform because I just knew the world would love it.

Before I returned back to the US I already made sure I had my team ready for this project. I contacted Ferdinand Nyarko our photographer, Christiana Osawe our hairstylist,  Nneoma Nwaka Our makeup artist and also 5 different models, everybody was excited about the project, 2 weeks later Magic was created - Creative director Nneka.

  2. Just like world class chefs guard their signature recipes, bead manufacturers guard their color formulas as well. orbeez

  3. Square join beading takes into account significantly more prominent assortment in your beadwork and rather than basic making a series of dots for pieces of jewelry, arm bands or hoops, you would now be able to make your own beaded textures. In this article we talk about how you can gain proficiency with this and a few thoughts of what you can make with this beading procedure.
