Jewelry - Building a Bridge between Israel and Africa
By Benji Shulman
 Africa, Israel, Jewelry? 

Bibi's Africa summit may not have come to pass but cultural and business contacts are continuing to grow. On today's episode of the New Blue Review we talk to Beverly Price of the Africa - Africa Jewelry project. Bev is a contemporary artist whose work has been exhibited globally and worn by people such as Nelson Mandela. Her latest venture involves taking the drawings made by Israeli-Ethiopian children  and getting them crafted by local South Africans artisans into unique adornment pieces. The project hopes to raise money for Maksam, an initiative of Telfed - The South African Zionist Federation in Israel, that works to support the Ethiopian Israeli community of Hadera,
