Description

Martin Dartey is an accomplished Ghanaian artist now living in Nairobi. In addition to setting up an authentic Ghanaian recycled glass production site on his wife’s family farm, Martin paints and designs jewelry that is sold around the world under the Monda African Art moniker.

Martin worked together with the talented Elaine Bellezza to create this unique slider necklace from squared circles, or “squircles”, of cow bone strung together on a cord with silver spacers. This adaptable necklace can be reshaped just by sliding the bone beads up or down the cord.
