Krobo Mountain Bead "Handmade" Earrings

Details

Stunning eye-catching tribal earrings, which reminded me of a Zebra.
I used 20x12mm Black with white stripe Krobo beads, 3mm black e-beads, 11x9 Antique Silver Finish Pewter Lady Bug charms with Hypoallergenic earwires
Each bead is unique and different, but kinda still the same.
Beads are handmade from recycled glass, formed into beads known as Krobo beads, hand painted, and fired in a kiln in Ghana, West Africa.
Powder glass African beads, made by the people of Krobo Mountain in Ghana, West Africa. Many designs of Krobo beads are patterned to resemble old Venetian FANCY trade beads.
Earrings... 1-1/2" long

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I was given about 5lbs. of awesome beads from all over the world. These awesome beads was in my new stash of beads.

More Info

Made from bottles and other glass items that are turned into powder, then poured into molds in order to create these elbow shaped beads. Decorations on the beads are made with a paste made of colored glass powder and water which is applied by hand using a thin wooden stalk. The beads are cooked a second time to fix the decor.

These recycled glass beads were made in small cottage industries in Ghana, Africa. The beads were handcrafted by pulverizing old, discarded glass (bottles, windshields, etc) and pouring the powder into crude clay molds. The stem of a local plant is added, this burns away during firing, leaving a hole for stringing. The beads are fired in a primitive, wood fired earthen oven. Many beads are hand painted with traditional designs and then strung on raffia.
