Details

Ila Suleyman inherited his passion for jewelry making from his grandfather, who taught him how to work with natural leather from a young age in Ghana. He crafts the stunning statement necklace by hand with supple cardinal red leather, centering the bold accessory with a natural curved bone pendant. "Although I introduce modernity in my designs, they are finished as timeless pieces to be cherished for generations," says Ila who calls his design Nooma, a Mamprusi word meaning "sweetness."

"Its perfect!"

This necklace by Ila Suleyman is dramatic in its simplicity. I love its colors and textures, and I love its asymmetry. Its perfect, and even prettier in person than online.

"Ethnic Modern Simplicity"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Paglayiri, beaded dangle earrings coordinate with Ohemaa necklace made by Cynthia Danquah and also necklace, African Wisdom, by IIa Suleyman. Paglayiri earrings are African inspired with a modern simplicity that will compliment, not overpower, other ethic jewelry. Excellent quality and value. Happy with purchase.
