From Modern Ghana by the Dangme News: "The African Krobo bead culture has become a national one. It is common to see people from all parts of the country producing and using beads (powdered-glass, bamboo, plastic) but when it comes to quality and value, they are unmatched to Krobo beads. The Krobo bead makers are best known for their wonderfully made colorful powdered glass beads made from recycled glass and produced using traditional, labor-intensive methods." Fascinating where these beads come from and how they are made!
This bracelet has two types of Krobo beads, solid blue round, and the colorful green/blue tube beads. The Krobo's are accented with silver metal, green and turquoise freshwater pearls, leaf design blue Czech glass beads, and vintage rondelle glass beads, finished with a Rhodium plated hammered toggle clasp.
All pieces are designed by me. I make all bracelets to fit a standard 6" wrist unless another size is requested. All my bracelets are meant to gently drape from the wrist slightly onto the hand. When measuring for a specific size, please use a soft measuring tape, fitting snugly around the wrist bone. I will take into account the size it needs to be to fit you perfectly. All pieces are one of a kind and not duplicated.
