MJ.VISUAL Bead Project is a product of Jackson’s passion for combining traditional African beadwork with contemporary design as well as creating a platform for less privileged women to reveal their artistic skills. All portraits have been conceptualized and designed by Jackson
and hand-beaded by women from the townships of Cape Town. The beaded portraits have been adapted from photographs. The 3-dimensional shape of the beads provide texture and depth to the image, creating a realistic effect.
