Details

Inspired by a powerful Ghanaian priest named Ofomko Anokye, a co-founder of the Empire of Asante in West Africa, artisan Roberto Aidoo-Taylor crafts several beads from local sese wood to flank a unique wooden pendant on this powerful statement necklace. The horned mask-shaped ornament is painted red and black to impart the power and dynamism of this revered 17th-century leader onto its modern-day bearer. The necklace features an adjustable sliding knot for a custom fit.

Sharon

We really like the ""Perfect Peace"" bracelet in green and black but the first time my husband wore it the black threads came out from under the green braiding and it is basically broken/not wearable. We will have to return it. Hope you can ensure this doesn't happen with your bracelets in the future and wishing you success.

I received your beautiful fan today and it is even more beautiful in person. It is very well made and I will display it nicely.

Joe

Received two woven bracelets today. Well crafted for the price but one of the bands was not as advertised . . . 8.5 inches instead of 8.75 inches.
