Details

Robert Aidoo-Taylor designs this bracelet for men in gold and black 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 vile. 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.

"Very unique and well-crafted"

I love wearing this necklace. Nicely carved, and the pink accents stand out well against the earthy brown/black. Perfect length, no clasps to mess with. I browsed all the African mask pendants and this one is my favorite.

"Great bracelet"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Some of the items by this artist are listed as for men. However, I purchased this bracelet for myself (female), and it is perfect! I have been wearing it with all of my navy outfits. It is so well made and the artist has a unique product that is wonderfully designed.
