Ila Suleyman preserves the natural markings in horn to craft these admirable earrings. He names them Awaayi, the Mamprusi word for 'Teardrop.' From northern Ghana, the Mamprusi people are predominantly rice and cattle farmers who use cow hide to create various items including jewelry and accessories.
Please note horn markings are natural, making each pair of earrings unique.
