This beautiful strand of African powder glass beads was made by the people of Krobo Mountain in Ghana, West Africa. Many designs of Krobo beads are patterned to resemble old Venetian fancy trade beads. They are made from bottles and other glass items that are turned into powder, then poured into molds in order to create beads. Decorations on the beads are made with a paste made of colored glass powder and water which is applied by hand using a thin wooden stalk. The beads are cooked a second time to fix the decor. Each bead measures approximately 21-26 x 11-12mm with a hole size of approximately 3mm. You will receive a full strand measuring approximately 30". Limited supply.

Lovely Colors, Beautifully Decorated.

I bought these, and another complementary strand with the same colors, and I'm really delighted with them. The hand-painted exteriors are lovely and clean, while still maintaining the unmistakable uniqueness of handmade and decorated beads.

I love these beads.

Rich in color, feel good in my hand and when I wear them.

Quite pleased.
