Details

By Joycelyn Sena Zigah, this handcrafted bracelet depicts cowrie shells in gleaming sterling silver. The beautiful shells were once used as money in West Africa, and Ghana's currency — the Cedi — takes its name from sedie, the Akan word for "cowry." "Cowrie is money and should be worn as such — an emblem of prosperity," the Ghanaian designer says.

"This really is now a cherished Heirloom"

Though she was not born in West Africa, my granddaughter (born in Ethiopia) will treasure this for her whole life. She was so thrilled to receive it.

I was surprised at how thin the silver is given the price (and I used a 50% off coupon)
