Travel has always been a means through which boundaries are crossed, understanding is gained, and “new worlds” are explored. There is no better time in history than now for us to access cultures other than our own, so that we may learn from them and share experiences with them. To follow are areas of interest that we can incorporate into a tour, or from which an expanded experience can be created. This is by no means an exhaustive list, just enough to whet your appetite:

The art of re-purposing old radiators, bottles, and junk, otherwise headed for the landfill, into beautiful jewelry was mastered in West Africa way before the rest of the world started “going green.” With a rich and complicated past defining its current styles, jewelry continues to play a vital part in how West Africans express themselves, re-defining “statement jewelry” both in their own communities and abroad.


The need for beads has been at the core of African history since the Stone Age. Evidence of simple beads made using primitive tools from materials like shells, bone, seeds and even human teeth, have been found in various parts of Africa dating back 280,000 years. Beads were worn as symbols of status and protection, as well as symbols of beauty.


Making use of imported Western trash, like plastic and glass bottles, West Africans have found numerous ways to turn junk into jingles. Ghana produces Krobo beads made from recycled bottles, broken windshields, and any other shattered glass. In Burkina Faso, plastic prayer mats that are thrown out after a few, long prayers are recycled and cut up into colorful bracelets. Abandoned bronze radiators are pounded out and transformed into earrings in Mali. Excess trash has redefined the materials used for jewelry production in West Africa.
