African Spiral Link Bracelet

The links in this bracelet are based on iron belt ornaments from the Matakam peoples of Cameroon. Besides adorning the body, the loops serve as a form of stored wealth, rather like a wearable savings account. The belt ornament that inspired this jewelry can be found in the collection of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African Art.
