The necklace is handmade by the Ghanaian jewelry design brand Aketekete founded by Michael Nana Beyin Gyan and Maria Bernat Astorga in Elmina.
Maria and Micheal state about their brand: "Aketekete is the name of a traditional festival from Elmina in which rituals are performed to connect with ancestors and celebrate their roots. It is an ode to the past and to never be forgotten. A connection to nature and its forms. To celebrate culture, origins, and stories otherwise lost. We value collaborating and connecting with creatives to design modern objects with age-old techniques by supporting artisan communities to make them."
Aketekete is a newly established design brand based in Ghana, has gained recognition for its signature handmade baskets, bags, and jewelry. The brand operates in close collaboration with local artisan communities throughout the design and production process, emphasizing the use of natural fibers for their bags and baskets, and incorporating recycled and locally sourced beads in their jewelry.
