Details

Ghana's legendary kente cloth traditions inspire Ralph Ashong in the design of this necklace for men. Historically reserved for the nobility and the rich, kente patterns and colors are unique to the weavers that design them and the symbolism they confer to them. Ashong's pendant replicates kente artistry with images colored with a clay solution on a hand-carved teak wood pendant that hangs from an adjustable leather cord.

"Carved Wood Necklace"

Great piece however for my taste it is a bit too large for a necklace. I hung it over my rearview mirror in my car. Looks perfect! Love it.
