Description:
Diviners wore bronze pendants and would prescribe a small brass pendant to be worn by a client to secure the blessings of the spirits. The crescents with the ends turned down were meant to protect the wearer from disease. Accompanying this lost-wax casted pendant, are a variety of old trade beads: Bohemian glass feather beads, Nigerian Eja beads and small bronze super beads. Strung together in a contemporary way, these traditional elements creatively come together in a beautiful display.
