Adinkra jewelry


My new favorite pair of earrings I bought from a vendor at the annual International African Arts Festival in Brooklyn last week. It’s the adinkra gye nyame symbol which symbolizes the supremacy of God.

Wanted to also purchase a pair of the duafe symbol which she didn’t have on display but offered to make me a pair on the spot. It wasn’t meant to be though, she didn’t have the proper equipment with her to cut the wood.

The search continues, and I’m sorry I didn’t get that vendor’s name or a business card. It’s still summer, hope I see her at another festival to add to my collection.
