Fulani Earrings Gold Plate Size 2
Fulani craftsmen have been hand-forging this classic seedpod-like jewelry for centuries. Originally crafted in gold, traditional pieces, such as these, are extremely labor-intensive, requiring two weeks of full-time work to complete. Rather than carry paper money, Fulani family wealth would be customarily worn by women in the form of jewelry to be carried with them at all times. Some of these items were handed down between women through many generations.
Brass construction with gold plate and gold filled hinged ear wires. Each purchase helps support these traditional Fulani craftsmen and their families.
