Agate beaded necklace, 'Edem' (Ghana)

The bright, sunny design of this necklace is by Harriet Faako Adjei in Ghana. She crafts the necklace by hand, stringing polished nuggets of enhanced agate with faceted glass beads, all in a cheerful yellow theme. Adjei calls her design Edem, a Ewe phrase that means "He has saved me."
