A Custom Oya Eleke Collar Commission by Client's Request

Posted on January 6, 2012 at 12:15 AM

Mawiyah Kai EL-Jamah Bomani (Aboyade):

"Omo Oshun Ale, I am deeply overjoyed with my Oya ileke. Wow! It just arrived today and as soon as I get all dolled up I'm taking pictures just for you. Me and the family are in awe of your work. May the spirit of your sacred hands continue to bless many. Ase, for the patience in birthing this baby that I will nurture forever."

Oya medium Eleke Collar:

(x4) total stands, twisting through single larger beads

Approx. 56" long all the way around the top circular part

A small 5" tail ending with cowries

Glass beads include: Oya beads, brown beads, purple beads, small amount of red beads

Gem stones include; purple Amethyst and Topaz

Accents: Copper and bull horn

I worked closely with both the client and her husband on this commission. Together, we birthed a beautiful new custom creation.

Many thanks to Nadir Lasana Bomani (Ogunkeye) and his wife Mawiyah Kai EL-Jamah Bomani (Aboyade), for being such wonderful clients.
