Details

The harmonious contrast of colors in the design of these beaded earrings is fascinating. From Ghana's Rita Addo Zakour, the earrings are crafted by hand with grey recycled glass beads. They are centered by the golden glow of amber. Flanked by recycled plastic beads, the earrings are worn on brass hooks. Zakour's earrings are called "Akorfa," the Ewe term for "Comfort."
