The story

In Ghana, beads played a role for centuries in traditional Krobo culture where they are used for many different ceremonies such as birth, marriage, death.and coming of age rituals such as Dipo where girls where a large number of beads and perform special dances. African beads are also used as a symbol of status and are worn by community leaders and chiefs.

Craftsmen of the Krobo tribe are among the oldest and most famous makers of wonderfully colourful powdered glass beads in Africa. The colours of the beads are important for the occasion they are used; gold is a very much used colour and represent wealth, maturity and prosperity. Blue beads are associated with affection and tenderness, and white and blue in combination evoke femininity and worn by women.

Powder glass beads are made from empty glass bottles. The beads are translucent or semi-translucent, and they receive their perforations, as well as their final shapes, after firing.

We supply them with a standard by which they are transformed into a beautiful object.
