Details

Ghana's Ila Suleyman crafts a necklace featuring five beaded strands threaded with red recycled vinyl beads. The ends of the multi-strand section are finished with sese wood beads, agates, and leather strips serving as spacers. The brass hook clasp complements the beads' warm tones. The name Wend Panga comes from the Mamprusi word meaning "strong will."

"Beautiful bracelet"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I ordered Annula in Sea Green, which is a teal color. Like another reviewer, I apparently received Annula in Green, which is an emerald/forest green. Its lovely, too, and fortunately I can wear it with something else. But I wanted the Sea Green (teal) for a particular outfit, and it would be good if you sent buyers what they ordered.

The colors are beautiful together. The necklace holds its shape well when you wear it. It is unusual and attractive.
