Adwenepa or "good thoughts" in Akan inspire the original design of these earrings by Ghana's Millicent Okine. She crafts the earrings by hand with bamboo cylinders adorned with pyrograph techniques. Followed by ornate terracotta beads, the earrings feature recycled plastic discs. The earrings hang from brass hooks.
Millicent Okine has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $200 and the most recent for $100. Proceeds were used to purchase an assortment of beads for her jewelry.
