Working with recycled materials, Ghanaian artisan Akwele Suma makes a statement for ecological preservation. She chooses strips of poster and magazine paper in orange, forming them into helix shapes that dangle from brass hooks.
The artist uses the paper at hand so paper colors will vary, making each design a unique example of handcrafted art. These beads receive a protective coat of clear nail polish.
Akwele is currently supporting the education of her own child and three others, from primary school all the way to the university level.
The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.
Akwele has one child that she cares for.
