This beautiful handcrafted bracelet features round off white African Krobo beads, smokey black Krobo disks and genuine copper beads completed with a beautiful copper clasp. The white Krobo beads tend to reflect some green, gray and yellow depending on their background.
This bracelet is approximately 8-1/2" in length and is meant to be worn loosely on your wrist.
If you are looking for a special gift, combine the bracelet with matching earrings which can be found as a separate listing.
Krobo beads are created 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. Soul of Somanya was the source of the Krobo beads used in this bracelet. 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!
