Inspired by the passport masks or miniature masks created by almost every ethnic group in West Africa across the 19th and 20th century. Crafted small enough to fit in one’s palm, the owner would carry the mask when traveling. It would be woven into garments or worn as an amulet to keep the wearer physically and spiritually connected to their tribe.
Individually handcrafted and finished in Melbourne Australia, using primarily reclaimed/recycled 925 Sterling Silver.
Face of pendant 22mm x 14mm
