With glass bead making having a long history in Africa, the Krobo people skillfully pound recycled glass into powder and then shape it into molds via high heat. Artisans further refine each mold with manual polishing and painting, producing uniquely handmade beads that feature distinctive irregularities. Chiefs and Queens have historically adorned themselves with these beads, along with their entourage, during ceremonial occasions. Each necklace strand is just over 35 inches long, while the wrist strand is 14 inches, with additional string provided for easy tying. Color may vary on different devices. NO RETURNS OR EXCHANGES.
