ITEM DESCRIPTION: Double Helix
As long as we have been around, people have used plaiting, braiding, and weaving to protect, clothe, adorn, feed, and tell stories. This piece represents a chance to tell that story.
A collaboration between CDL Jewelry and Aisha Likes It, discussion for this piece began as a leap of faith. Strands of Ghanaian and Indonesian beads in shades of blue and red are bound and interwoven together with navy leather cord and then attached to a stunning sterling silver and brass micro-mosaic. Evoking both naaxein weaving and African hair braiding styles, this piece is one of a kind.
