Mami Wata is a complex and enigmatic deity or spirit in the mythology of many West and Central African cultures. The name "Mami Wata" is a Pidgin English term that translates to "Mother Water" in English. She is often depicted as a mermaid or serpent-like figure, embodying both beauty and danger. Mami Wata is associated with water, fertility, healing, and supernatural powers.

Pearls are traditionally associated with purity and femininity. Orange and other vibrant colors are often used in African traditional attire and accessories, signifying cultural richness and diversity. Mami Wata, often depicted as a goddess of beauty and allure, shares these qualities. The pearls symbolize the divine and captivating nature of Mami Wata. By incorporating these elements into this necklace, I pay homage to the cultural context from which Mami Wata's worship emerged.
