Description

Akan metalsmiths in Ghana and Cte dIvoire created a wide variety of splendid ceremonial objects and jewelry forms in gold and cast brass for local patrons. An example of the designs developed within the region is a necklace in the Museums collection composed of eleven cast-brass beads from Cte dIvoire (19thmid- 20th- century) made by the Baule or Lagoon peoples, both Akan subgroups. Its geometric-shaped beads feature intricate wax thread patterns and openwork designs. Our ornate bracelet is based on the original beads.
