"I crafted this necklace to bless you with good health," declares Ila Suleyman. From his "Laafi" collection meaning "good health" in the Mamprusi language, the necklace is centered by a cow bone pendant escorted by terracotta and sese wood beads. Colorful beads recycled from plastic bottles and vinyl discs are diligently threaded by hand for a necklace that fastens with a brass hook.

Beautiful necklace, crafted with care. The coloring was even throughout the leather strands, and the bone piece made a nice focal point. Very pleased with this practical work of art!
