When beading, we create the symbolic coding that is evident in historical Zulu beadwork by using its traditional seven colours to convey messages in the form of geometric shapes. Beach Bride Dresses uses triangles that symbolise the genders and their interconnectedness in Zulu beading:
woman andman as individuals, and married woman and married man in societies.
