Details

Akwele Suma designs earrings of maritime charm in a festive purple hue. She recycles paper by folding it into boats with bauxite masts and recycled glass bead anchors. These Ghanaian handcrafted earrings exude playful naivete and an eco-conscious mindset.

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.
