ABOUT AFRICAN BRASS BEADS
This ancient form of hand creating brass beads in Ghana and Ethiopia are second only to the upcycled glass beads as Africa's most popluar bead export. The lost art has had a strong revival for commercial export but it has often served as a thriving form of payment for the community. Craftsmanship has also served to be a symbol of status and pride for African communities.
Today, they help the economy of Ghana. Each strand was personally selected from a Fair Trade vendor that is part of a cooperative in Ghana.
