Horn and leather necklace, 'Talatu' (Ghana)

Suspended from yellow leather cords, a pendant carved from bull horn centers a necklace rich in Ghanaian elegance. "I call this design Talatu, the Mamprusi name usually given to girls born on a Tuesday," says Ila Suleyman. From northern Ghana, the Mamprusi people are predominantly rice and cattle farmers who use cow hide to create various items including jewelry and accessories. This hand crafted necklace fastens with a recycled plastic toggle.
