Handcrafted Africana Earrings. Uniquely tribal and earthy, our Africana earrings feature handcrafted brass lattice beads from West Africa. Each bead is handmade from wax and then cast with molten brass, a technique that dates back to the 7th century. As a result, no two beads are the same and expect them to have minor imperfections. At the center of the top bead is a small round tiger eye stone. Also available in an assortment of stones.
