About the artist: African Bohemian statement jewelry design by Akweley design

African Bohemian statement jewelry design by Akweley design

My name is Rita Akweley. I am a Ghanaian native with a passion for offering cultural jewelry sets created by hand using authentic Ghanaian  trade beads mixed  with Semi precious stone beads from all over the world.  


I was raised in a culture of various colors, textures, and design. It is no surprise that I insist on using only the finest quality of authentic Ghanaian  beads and materials.

I relocated to the states in 2005  with my wonderful husband and I couldn’t be happier in my new setting, though I do miss my home country. Creating Ghanaian jewelry allows me to continuously embrace the cherished traditions of my native environment.  I started designing jewelry after my first child, Creating jewelry gives me  joy and I feel at  peace as  I put colors together.   Working with beads is  therapeutic for me and my dream is that some day I will be able to do what I love  with the main focus of making people happy.


It is my hope that you’ll find the beauty that I see in each of my jewelry designs as they are truly created with love. To see more, you can visit my website at http://www.akweleydesign.com/


I look forward to creating someone beautiful for you!


Sincerely yours,



Henrietta Agyemang
