Wooden beads wrapped in copper 3” long. The name come from Togo tradition, and many African traditions are the same. However this earrings look like water gore that farmer or a person who is going on trip in the wildness, takes water gore and hang it over his shoulder and goes on his journey walks for miles, and the only thing he has is that water in the gore. He will keep on walking he will get wild fruits to eat and river to refill his water gore and he will be fine on his journey. He may not find a river for many days so that gore is very important to him, that is his livelihood.
