This traditional West African jewelry is created by Fulani craftspeople in Mali. One of the largest groups of nomadic herders in Africa, the Fulani customarily wore their wealth in the form of gold jewelry that they could carry with them at all times. Pieces like this, called kwotene kange could weigh up to 300 grams and were the ultimate sign of wealth.


Based on a design that has been worn for centuries, our large yet lightweight cuff bracelet is handcrafted from hammered brass that is plated with bright 24-karat gold. Traditionally, the gold is formed into a square rod that is heated and hammered to create a multi-edged blade, which is then twisted into shape.


Handcrafted in Mali. Hammered brass plated with 24-carat gold. 1"W x 6 1/2"L.

          Very nice bracelet. Only complaint is that it sometimes clothing, like scarf fringes or sweaters, etc, can get caught in it. Otherwise very nice and unique.

          Did you know that the name for the deep blue-green stone we call turquoise is actually based on misinformation? It’s from the French word for Turkish, because European traders found the stone at Turkish bazaars and assumed it was mined nearby, although what they found was most likely from present-day Iran. Nevertheless, Turkish jewelers are known for their inventive designs, as evidenced by the ornate treasures of the Ottoman Topkapi Palace.

The artisan melts, cools, hammers, shapes, chisels, and engraves the sterling silver to achieve a braided and woven effect.

          The Tuareg are a nomadic Berber tribe who live in the North African Sahara. They were once known as the Blue People of the Sahara because of the indigo-dyed turbans and veils that would stain their skin. They're known for their engraved silver jewelry; the Tuareg subclass called Inadan means people who work with fire and metal—blacksmiths. Using only simple hand tools and implements that could be easily transported on camels (screwdrivers, nails, safety pins, files, charcoal and handheld bellows) Tuareg craftsmen have plied their trade for centuries.

          For the Navajo of the American Southwest, turquoise has always been an important element in art and ritual. In rain ceremonies it represents the connection between sea and sky. It's also believed to ensure favor with one's yei, a holy being who mediates between the human and supernatural worlds. A Navajo artist working in Arizona creates this sterling silver cuff by hand, and sets a round turquoise cabochon at the center.
