Once you get a taste, you want more. The best giras in the world are for Pomba Gira and Exu, end of August in my Godmother’s Ile in Brazil. The best-the very best of the best-with singing, dancing, drumming, as each medium is ridden in waves by Exu, Pomba Gira, their spirit guides, and lets loose in the middle of the floor. The colored skirts of Pomba Gira swirl, hands on hips, laughing in joy, sweat soaking through clothes until you can wring them with your hands. The whole room is packed, attendees holding presents of red roses, champagne, cigars, jewelry; a favored treat for their favorite spirit guide, hoping to please them and receive a cleansing, messages, healing, wisdom. Mothers with babies in arms, white haired men and women, youth from the neighboring favelas; everyone knows when the bell rings, that magic is about to descend into the ile. The world stands still, time stands still-in the Gira of Exu.
This is the best "defumador", or smudging incense, used in countless spiritual houses before opening worship of the orisa and spirit guides.

Bejoim, alecrim, alfazema, guinea, and more. Don't understand portuguese? Just buy some of this, smudge with it, and you will understand why this botanical blend is the best. Comes in approx. 3 ounce packe. Burn this with natural charcoal in brazier. Incense burner not included but I do have them for sale, just ask.

Gift your Pomba Gira with these lovely black faceted heart and jumbo pearl earrings. The Pomba Gira lineage of the Jurema Preta tradition of Brazil is greatly loved and admired for the beauty, power and wisdom of this female energy. The Pomba Gira spirit guides aide those who are suffering in love, those who have sometimes lost all hope. They adore rich deep bright colors in clothing, especially red and black skirts and shawls of luxurious shiny cloth, and love to receive gifts of jewelry, especially in the shape of hearts-their domain. I have handcrafted these with love and care. I am an Iyalorixa of the Brazil Xango tradition of NE Brazil, a Juremeira of the Jurema Preta, and also a Iyanifa of the Ifa tradition in Nigeria. I work with Pomba Gira and know what she likes :). These are sure to please her.

There are three tribes in Brazil who still wear this style "Tanga" -a covering for the private areas - that can be worn on the front or back. The Aumeri-atrorari of Para and the Santareimaue and Caraja of Mato Grosso still use this incredible hand-worked style of covering. The palm fiber is Tukuma and the seeds are of Meru, Olho de Cabra and Palmeira. There is no front or back side, they are the same on each side. This is an authentic piece, not made for the tourist market. If you are a collector of South American Amer-Indian pieces, this is definitely an item worth picking up to add to your collection. It measures approx. 12" across at widest point, 6.50" across at bottom and 6" long with seed fringe. The ties, including the woven covering measure 41". It weighs a hefty 13.3 ounces.

Made of copper, brass, and iron, the Portuguese, British and French modeled these metal currency "bracelets" after the heavy copper leg bands, wrist and neck bracelets early Portuguese explorers saw in the 1470's in West Africa. The foreign made "manilla" (manus (hand) in Latin, monilia (necklaces) ), became a hot commodity used for trading in goods, especially for slaves (they weren't made to wear on the wrist). Each local region had different names for each variety and shape of manilla, with the Africans valuing them differently. The price of slaves in exchange for manillas varied greatly depending on the season, location, and type of manilla being offered. Manillas were the first all-purpose type of currency known in West Africa, wildly more valued than cowrie shells, and used for trade or at market buying goods, for bride price, paying diviners, fines, and for burial. With the end of the slave trade, manilla production in Antwerp and Birmingham slowed down, but was still used for palm-oil trade, with the exchange rate manipulated by the native traders to favor. In 1948 the British began a recall named "Operation Manilla", in order to swap them out with the British West African currency equal to 3 Pence for most common manilla, and possibly to halt the manipulation in palm-oil trade. Over 32 million pieces were exchanged for Pence and resold as scrap metal. On April 1, 1949, the manilla ceased to be legal tender in British West Africa; it serves as a historic reminder today of the centuries of slave trade and their role in the purchase of so many who made the Middle Passage to the New World.
These British manilla range over various centuries 1600's to early 1800's.
Sizes and eras vary. Smaller manillas @ approx. 2. 3/8" by 2. 1/4", to 2.1/2" plus by 2" 5/8 inches. Weights from 1.8 ounces to 3.1 ounces vary with some small being just as heavy as large. I randomly pick but you can request large or small, I will choose the best possible for you. I do have 2 or 3 that will fit a woman's wrist but no guarantee, these are not 'bracelets' though the phrase used to describe them is 'bracelet'. email me email@example.com if you want one for wearing - first come first served.
