Recycled-Glass Ghana Polkadot Elbow Bead Necklace
Amazing medium sized polkadot elbow bead necklace, made from recycled-glass beads handcrafted in Ghana, Africa. They are a mid-sized deep green/charcoal bead handpainted with green, yellow and red polkadots. The clasp is a sterling silver and enamel box clasp clasp with two little fish, fittings are all sterling silver. This is an amazing big, bold and bright bead, the pattern has been painted in bright, gorgeous colours in various sizes and densities.
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.
