"A necklace crafted to bless you with Laafi (good health)," says Ila Suleyman of Ghana. Inspired by the Mamprusi blessing, Suleyman crafts the necklace by hand with a cow bone pendant at the center flanked by sese wood and terracotta beads. Blue beads recycled from plastic create a bold contrast in a necklace that fastens with a brass hook.

"I absolutely love this blue necklace. "

I love this necklace. I spent a month in Rwanda and Uganda with a 2015 CNN Hero of the Year nominee I am helping to write his autobiography. Being a male, we never got close to jewelry. I fell in love with Rwanda and the traditional tribal dresses and skirts. I also craved jewelry. I have my beautiful necklace on right now. It's beautiful. I love everything about Africa and always have. Now that I've been in two of the countries, my necklace means even more.
