Gyname earring Carnelian/ adventurine/ pearl/ citrine/ peridot
We have taken seven of our favourite Adinkra symbols of the Akan people of Ghana and applied these motifs to a collection of hand pierced brass earrings, embellished with dazzling precious, semi precious gems, beads and pearl. These are show stoppers! no two pairs alike.
Adinkra is a visual language of motifs which have aphorisms and concepts that the Akan people apply to their lives.These symbols can be seen in Pottery, textile print and architectural features.
Gyame translates to 'God is in everything.' The akan believe in the omnipresence of God. This symbol is poular and used in textile and brickwork. This pair of earrings feature carnelian, peridot, citrines, adventurine and pearl,11 cm long. Sterling silver hooks, gold tone finish.
