Details

Black complements red and green in a colorful scarf by Rachel Armah. Woven by hand, traditional West African kente cloth depicts a design known as Nhyira. The phrase means "blessing" in the Akan language.

Each strip of kente cloth requires considerable effort, and the looms are worked with both hands and feet. Each color has its own meanings in Asante culture. Green is fertility and new harvest, gold is royalty, black is strength, aging and spirituality, and white is purity.

Love the natural feel of these! The go with all my casual wear, both jeans & dresses. I got them too because of the brass hoops - a nice change from my usual silver.

"Stones are beautiful!"

I love these stones, but I have to confess that they are heavier than I can comfortably wear. Im so sad about that. Ive been thinking of putting them on a gold chain as a necklace because the stones are so very pretty.

I love the combination of colors and shapes. I have lots of earrings but none like these which get many compliments for their uniqueness. The craftsmanship is excellent.

"Lovely Earrings"

These earrings can be seen when you wear them. The pink cats eye beads are beautiful . The picture doesnt really do them justice. These earrings are different than any others I have. If you want some pretty earrings that are unique then these are for you!
