The Craftsmanship of Krobo Beads

The people of Krobo in Ghana have been creating these unique beads for generations. The technique involves using recycled glass, which is ground into a fine powder and then heated in molds to form the beads. This method not only supports environmental sustainability but also preserves the traditional bead-making techniques that are an integral part of Ghanaian and African cultural heritage.

Trade beads hold significant historical importance in Africa, having been used for trade and as a form of currency. Today, they continue to be cherished for their beauty and cultural significance, making them a popular choice for jewelry and art projects worldwide.
