Smokey black Krobo bead disks accented with genuine copper beads create these unique dangle earrings.
These earrings were designed to go with a black and white Krobo bead bracelet which can be found in another listing.
African Krobo beads are created by hand using 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 a 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!
