Handcrafted with Ghanaian obsidian and glass beads, and adorned with an Adinkra charm (Gye Nyame or Sankofa), our Day Name Bracelet is a beautiful representation of West Africa's rich culture that one can wear with pride.

The Akan people of Ghana frequently name their children after the day of the week they were born. These "day names" have further meanings concerning the soul and character of the person. This naming tradition is shared throughout West Africa and the African Diaspora.
