African Hand Crafted Braided Brown Leather Necklace, "Mpusia in Brown"$34.99
In rich dark brown, strips of leather are used to carefully hand-braid this necklace. Ila Suleyman handcrafts this necklace, which features a wider section at the center that tapers the closer it gets to the button clasp. This necklace is named meaning "thank you" in northern Ghanaian.
Ebony Wood Pendant Necklace with Wine Leather Cord, "Zacksongo in Wine"$59.99
Ghana's Ila Suleyman presents this bold pendant necklace showcasing beautiful ebony wood. A thin brass inlay design embellishes oval wood's dark backdrop. The necklace is crafted from two sets of seven strands of wine-colored leather, knotted together at the base to secure the strands to the pendant, closing with a button clasp in the back. The name comes from the Mamprusi word meaning "good home."
