Robben Island Art and Jewelry

Amandla Cufflinks

Amandla Cufflinks

R 6,800.00


This product is available in gold or silver.

The Piece

The Amandla Cufflinks are crafted from pieces of the Robben Island prison fence. Every piece is unique. Each piece is hand cut and silver soldered together. It then goes through a lengthy sealing process before the artifact is finally covered in silver or gold.

Legacy Collection is an emotionally rich collection and will always attract attention and conversation. Wearing Legacy Collection Jewellery is a way of showing solidarity in the struggle for freedom both in South Africa and globally, where people are still downtrodden.

Significance

Each Legacy Collection piece is named in honour of South Africa’s struggle to democracy.

Amandla is a Xhosa and Zulu word meaning power. This word was a popular rallying cry in the days of resistance against Apartheid, used by the African National Congress and its allies. The leader of a group would call out "Amandla!" and the crowd would respond with "Awethu" or "Ngawethu!" (to us), completing the South African version of the rallying cry Power to the People!
