Adinkra earrings : Nkyinkyim
A very symbolic pair of stud earrings hand-crafted in Ghana with sterling silver.
Nkyinkyim (part of the Adinkra symbols) can be translated as "Twisting/The Twisted Pattern" - a symbol of initiative, dynamism and versatility.
Widely used within the Ashanti culture - the Adinkra symbols have a decorative function but also represent objects that encapsulate evocative messages that convey traditional wisdom, aspects of life or the environment.
