Her beadwork changes lives

Pitsi Mogale found her passion in making beadwork jewellery.

POLOKWANE – From Ga-Dikgale Sefateng, Pitsi’s beaded creations are now the talk of the town since she began her business in 2015.

“I have always loved beaded jewellery but because I couldn’t afford to buy them I decided to begin making my own. It wasn’t long before people began admiring my jewellery and I saw an opportunity to turn it into a business. It was a difficult and complicated task but I believe talent will always locate itself,” she said.

Lacking business skills and marketing strategy, Pitsi’s business became stagnant until the Aluwani Foundation offered a six-week business skills workshop in the area.

“This workshop helped me to sharpen my business skills, understand how to manage my business’ finances and develop marketing strategies. After the workshop my business has grown from strength to strength. My business cannot really be classed as a small business anymore and I get orders from individuals and traditional dancing groups among others. My goal is to one day open my own boutique where I can sell not only my beadwork but both traditional and western attire. My advice for individuals who want to start their own businesses is to learn from your mistakes, play with your creativity and always have a winning strategy, that way you can never go wrong.”
