The beads are Krobo beads, a handmade glass bead crafted in Ghana, Africa from recycled glass bottles. They bottles are broken into chips or ground to a fine powder in a mortar and pestle, they are kiln fired in clay moulds in patterns or hand decorated with painted layers and fired between each layer - each bead is a slightly different shape and pattern. These necklaces are newly strung on sturdy c-lon with a new sterling silver tab clasp. They are bright and bold African bead necklaces that look fantastic with a few on together in different patterns.
Elbow beads are naturally not uniform and lay in a squiggle formation around the neck, enough space has been left when strung for you to twist the beads to sit to your liking when on.
