Fulani earrings are one of the most talked-about pieces of jewellery from Africa and have been worn by the likes of Beyoncé and Kerry Washington. These unique earrings will make an instant statement and add style to any outfit, day or night, smart or casual. These authentic lightweight earrings are from Mali in West Africa and are made hand crafted from twisted bronze.
Fulani craftsmen in Mali have been creating these classic seedpod-like jewellery for centuries. The process for creating Fulani earrings are extremely labour-intensive. A symbol of a Fulani family’s wealth tends to be shown by women in the form of jewellery wearing like these earrings.
These are so popular, it’s hard to keep them in stock, especially since there are only a few people who make these now.
Bronze naturally has an unevenness in colour. In some instances the earrings have a brownish patina, adding character to the metal.
