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.
