Stunning handmade aqua powdered glass African Krobo beads and disks are the focus of this elegant bracelet. The combination of the aqua beads and the sterling silver is gorgeous. A sterling silver filled clasp is the finishing touch.
The bracelet shown here is approximately 7-5/8" in length. Please contact our shop if you need a different size and we can create one for you.
Krobo beads are made by hand from recycled glass which has been ground up in a large mortar and pestle and then fired using traditional techniques in open-sided, thatch-roofed huts.
The Krobo beads used in this bracelet can be purchased at Soul of Somanya. This awesome non-profit charity teaches young people of Somanya, Ghana, West Africa a trade.
Our handcrafted jewelry is created by combining the unique skills of creating dichroic or art glass cabochons together with wire-wrapping. The result is a one-of-a-kind jewel for you to wear.
One of the unique characteristics of dichroic glass is its reflecting color. Pictures don't really express the true beauty and depth of the piece. Carapace said the following about a pendant she won: "Wow. Wow! The pendant came today. It's amazing-the pictures didn't even come close to doing it justice. The wire wrapping is so liquid, I love the way it twirls around the glass-and the glass looks like a field of blue fireworks! It's just an amazing piece, and I'm so thrilled to have it. Thank you so much!"
We also create bracelets, earrings and other items using a combination of lampwork, African Krobo, sterling silver, Tierra Cast and other beads and findings.
Thanks for stopping in. Have a blessed day!
