Details

Chunky beads in bright tangerine have a secret — they are crafted from recycled paper. Mindful of the environment, Akwele Suma creates an original bracelet that stretches to slip over the wrist. "The color orange denotes energy," the Ghanaian artist says. "Wearing it connects us to join forces and fight against injustices in our society."

The artist uses the paper at hand so paper colors will vary, making each design a unique example of handcrafted art. These beads receive a protective coat of clear nail polish.
