These necklaces are handmade in Ireland using ethically sourced beads from Ghana, crafted by the Krobo tribe. They are made from the recycled glass of medicine and beverage bottles using a ceramic mold and a furnace. These beads have beads created this way for centuries. Beads still play important roles in Krobo society, be it in rituals of birth, coming of age, marriage, or death.
Each bead is unique and has a chunky, frosted, semi-translucent appearance – like ice.
Paired with a statement piece of cut brass and fitted with a gold fill earwire.
