Traditional Fulani Ear-Rings
Fulani craftsmen have been hand-forging their classic seedpod-like jewelry for centuries. Originally crafted in gold, traditional pieces like the Gold-plated Fulani Tribal Earrings and Silver-plated Fulani Tribal Earrings are extremely labor-intensive, requiring two weeks of full-time work to complete. Rather than carry paper money, Fulani family wealth would be customarily worn by women in the form of jewelry like these earrings—to be carried with them at all times. Some of these items were handed down between women through many generations.
