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!
