Artisan Robert Aidoo-Taylor of Ghana hand crafts this men's black leather wristband bracelet, which he titles Bediako, an Akan word meaning "warrior." The ends of the leather are wrapped in matching nylon cord. Multiple nylon cords in blues and red are featured on the front of the bracelet.
About his artistic journey, the artisan says: “I am a self-taught artist. In 2012, I ventured into the realm of handcrafted jewelry. I have always used wood in my art and it's exciting to be able to add other materials to achieve something interesting."
