The handmade Akra Necklace is inspired by Akrafokonmu, elaborate gold discs worn as protective emblems by high-ranking members within households in west Africa. Known as ‘soul washer’s discs,’ Akrafokonmu often feature a circular centre surrounded by parallel lines—this is my own take on it. The Akra Necklace is from my new collection.
A dramatic 3mm olive tourmaline is set in the centre of this iconic 9ct yellow gold necklace and strung on an elegant snake chain.
Available with a 16”, 18”, or 20” chain. An Akra Spinner Ring is also available.
