Anitah Quansah's Must-Have Jewelry Pieces For S/S 14

London-based designer Anitah Quansah's must-have jewelry collection for Spring/Summer 14.

Anitah Quansah constantly surprises us. Each one of her collections is more beautiful than the last and every piece of her jewelry has its own stunning magic. With Silhouette of Power, the Quansah's eponymous label unveils a limited edition series of bold, statement neckpieces with minimal details. A designer of Nigerian background, it's hard to miss the diaspora influence in Anitah Quansah's S/S 14 collection — most of the materials used where sourced from Africa and India, including shells, feathers, beads, faceted crystals, semi-precious stones, fabrics and more. The designer told Bella Naija that "this S/S 14 collection of handmade jewelries explores the rich African artistry and craftsmanship [as well as the] rich, powerful, aristocratic glamour and pageantry of the 17th century, characterized by high ruffled collars and bejeweled fabrics worn by Queen Elizabeth I of England." One of the OKA favorite, Anitah Quansah's jewelry is a must-have for Spring/Summer 14. Check out the lookbook above, which features Nigerian model Ayoola Bakare and feel free to tweet about it to @okayafrica with #anitahquansah.
