Leather cuff bracelet, 'Wend Konta Sun' (Ghana)

Following in the footsteps of his forefathers, Ila Suleyman transforms leather into jewelry with a modern twist. He starts by recycling PVC tubes into a cuff bracelet and covers it with leather with subtle diagonal textures. A thin black line runs horizontally over the sunny yellow bracelet that Suleyman calls Wend Konta, meaning "God's gift" in the language of the Mamprusi people.
