I’ve mentioned before that I love doing custom orders, and I truly do love all the custom orders I’ve worked on so far, but every once in a while I get one that holds a bit of extra special meaning, which makes me feel especially honored, and usually teaches me something new and interesting in the process. This Olokun prayer bracelet was just such an order.

Olokun is a deity of the Yoruba religion associated with the sea, the name is literally translated as Owner (OLO) of the Ocean (OKUN). Olokun has been referred to as both male and female, but it is generally believed that that Olokun transcends gender. Depicted as a man or a woman with a fish tail, Olokun wears a mask of dark blue with 9 accent colors, and a beaded necklace in dark blue, and accented with green and red coral beads, much like the ones I’ve used in this special slave bracelet.
