Robert Aidoo-Taylor designs this bracelet in gold and navy blue in honor of Queen Amina of Hausaland. Born in 1533 in what is now known as Zaira, Nigeria, Amina was also a fierce warrior who ruled over 34 years. However, there are some who believe she was a legend and not an actual person. It is said that once when she was imprisoned she had been blindfolded and chained, sentenced to death by poison. Her executioner was given the poison in a cone-shaped bottle and was threatened with death should he spill any of it. He had to untie and remove the folds on Amina's eyes, but couldn't do so while holding the vial. When Amina was able to see how he was struggling, she told him to remove one of her bracelets and use it as a stand for the cone-shaped bottle. Upon realizing she had just saved his life, the executioner decided to help her escape rather than poison her.

10 Testimonials for Robert Aidoo-Taylor


We really like the ""Perfect Peace"" bracelet in green and black but the first time my husband wore it the black threads came out from under the green braiding and it is basically broken/not wearable. We will have to return it. Hope you can ensure this doesn't happen with your bracelets in the future and wishing you success.

I received your beautiful fan today and it is even more beautiful in person. It is very well made and I will display it nicely.


Received two woven bracelets today. Well crafted for the price but one of the bands was not as advertised . . . 8.5 inches instead of 8.75 inches.
