EB Jewellery is best known for her Umbala collection, a range of jewellery inspired by the Southern Ndebele beadwork of South Africa. It is comprised of 5 sub-collections: Kunye (Arrow collection), Bili (Squares collection), Thathu (Steps collection), Kune (Octagon collection) and Hlanu (Shield collection). These are the Ndebele words for 1-5, representing the counting involved in making beaded pieces.

Renowned for: Throughout the production of the Umbala collection, EB Jewellery conferred with a master bead worker named Sophy Nosinkie Mahlangu, who runs Nomhlekhabo Craft Africa, an Ndebele beadwork co-op of twenty women. 5% of the sales price of each piece of jewellery are donated to the Nomhlekhabo co-op in South Africa.

Handpicked by JewelStreet because: Emma Boshoff is continually inspired by her bicultural identity. You can see the influence of both her British and South African heritage through her jewellery. For example, when designing pieces from the Umbala collection, Emma focuses on symmetry, focal point, straight lines and never letting colours touch each other, which is seen in Ndebele beadwork.Founder of EB Jewellery, Emma Boshoff is a British-South African jewellery designer, currently based in West Wales.
