Crafted in natural shades of cream, these cowbone earrings glow. The earrings are part of the "In Memory of Collins Amanatey Korle" collection, which is a special collaboration between NOVICA and artisans to preserve the artistry of Collins Amanetey Korle as well as to benefit his family. The artisans that came to his aid in life are now committing their time and effort to continue his work by hand-crafting his designs. NOVICA will donate 25% from every purchase in the collection to an education fund for Korle's two children.
In Memory of Collins Amanatey Korle has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $100 and the most recent for $300. Proceeds were used to buy a drilling machine for his workshop, and also to stock up on the materials he uses for his designs.
