Artist Statement

Handmade African statement jewelry for all occasion

Akweley Design is owned by Rita Agyemang.  Her designs are inspired by the variety of textures and colors available in the Ghanaian markets and the irreplaceable beauty of the semi-precious, handmade beads and stones she uses.
Rita focuses on traditional pieces that complement her love of Ghanaian culture and its atmosphere. She continues to create one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces and sets in her home studio using authentic handmade Ghanaian beads collected during her husband’s travels to her beloved home county.

Each piece is created with the hope that her jewelry brings a sense of meaning and intention to its wearer. It is important to know that every single jewelry set offered is strung by hand and requires incredible dedication to beauty and quality. This is one of many aspects that make each piece beautifully unique.
