Traditional Fulani earrings
Hand-crafted in Mali,these earrings are traditionally worn by the Fulani women in West Africa.
These earrings are handmade and made of recycled bronze from old car radiators and the silver are silver plated. The bronze is melted down and tapped out while being twisted. The Fulani gold is actually twisted bronze but was believed to be gold by the Fulani people for some time. The bronze is hammered till it is nearly paper thin, and then twisted to create the intricate look of the earrings.
