Jam + Rico Cowrie Bangle
Cowrie Shells circulated as a medium of exchange in Asia, Africa, Oceania and North America.
The cowrie shell, in particular, was the form of currency in West Africa during the transatlantic slave trade. Bangles are special to me because my grandma who was born and raised in Jamaica wore bangles all the time. My fondest memories are of her cooking plantains and rice and peas and hearing her bangles jingle as she stirred the pot.
