These Adinkra symbol ear wires are made out of 1/10 sterling-silver-filled wire. The metal is the equivalent of gold-fill wire, with the same properties and quality., giving you the bright whiteness of sterling and the durability of gold-filled at affordable prices. The thickness of the sterling silver overlay on this wire constitutes a full 1/10th of its overall weight (twice the content of 1/20 silver-filled wire of the same gauge).

The ear wires are handcrafted by Soul of Somanya artisans. These talented young people have incorporated traditional Ghanaian Adinkra symbols into the ear wire designs. The symbols mean (from left to right, top then bottom): 1) Friendship and Interdependence; 2) Adaptability and Grace Under Hardship; 3) Safety, Security and Love; 4) God is Supreme; and 5) Bravery and Valor.

You will receive 5 pairs of the headpins like the ones pictured here, one pair in each design (or the combination of your choice--just contact me).

All proceeds from sales go to support Soul of Somanya, a non-profit organization that offers training and sustainable employment at a living wage to disadvantaged youth in the Krobo region of Ghana, West Africa. We adhere strictly to fair trade principles.
