Remembrance Teardrop Adinkra Silver Earrings
The process of imprinting the symbols onto the silver is labor intensive. Each symbol has to be uploaded, cut out with heavy paper, shaped, enclose the silver and symbol in heavy water color paper and put through the rolling mill. Then saw, file. clean, liver of sulfur for accent of symbol and make the findings. Its worth every bit of time to have jewelry that has meaning beyond its beauty.
