Ila Suleyman inherited his passion for jewelry making from his grandfather, who taught him how to work with natural leather from a young age in Ghana. He crafts the stunning statement necklace by hand with supple royal blue leather, centering the bold accessory with a natural oval pendant. 'Although I introduce modernity in my designs, they are finished as timeless pieces to be cherished for generations,' says Ila who calls his design Masongo, a Mamprusi word meaning 'good mother.'
