Johanna Brierley Jewelry Design (http://www.johannabrierley.com/) is featuring a new line of silver and gold jewelry inspired by our work in Ghana. Johanna is an acclaimed jewelry artist from Winnipeg, Manitoba who is successful across Canada.
Having known each other since high school, Johanna and Megan Otu have put their creative efforts together in order to host a Jewelry Party featuring these beautiful works of art. Johanna has specifically designed a silver pendant with the Akokonan symbol on it. The Akokonan (CEIG’s logo) is an Adinkra symbol of a chicken’s foot, meaning a mother hen treads lightly over her young without harming them. This represents discipline and nurturing, which are prominent values in Ghanaian culture.
100% of the proceeds from these pendants goes to CEIG, Inc. and the building/maintaining of KG and primary schools in rural Ghana. As well, 10% of the proceeds from Johanna’s other lines of jewelry sold at the party will be donated to CEIG.
We are excited to maintain this collaboration with Johanna into the future. These unique pieces of jewelry will be available online and for purchase outside of the May. 3rd party date.
Get your silver Akokonan necklace, bracelet, or single pendant in time for Mother’s Day!
