By Joycelyn Sena Zigah, these handcrafted earrings depict 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.
