Each loop of beads is 34" long.

Please note: because these beads are handmade, cracks, imperfections, and separations may be present. Instead of viewing these variances as a flaw, we see them as the charm and character that are part of the handmade process.

These glass beads are made by the Ashanti and Krobo people in the Krobo mountains of Ghana. Glass powder is colored with ceramic dyes, then poured into clay molds with a cassava stalk set down the middle. The beads are then cooked in a clay kiln, fusing the glass powder. The cassava stalk burns, leaving a hole for threading the beads. Glass beads are integral to modern Krobo life. They are used in ceremonies of birth, coming of age, marriage, and death, as well as festivals and parades.
