The instant I saw this the title (Queen of Sheba) came to my mind. The amount of intricate handwork to attach all these beads to the rings is incredible. When I asked Rita how long it took her to make this she clicked her tongue and said, “Ooo - many, many hours. I lost count”. 

Artist: Rita Williams. 

Background: Rita is a widow living in the Liberian settlement (refugee camp) in Buduburam, Ghana (outside of Accra). She is the sole provider for her 8-year-old grandson.
