These earrings 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 been 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.
Each piece comes with a card outlining the story.
The earwires are gold filled large 35mm hoops. They are hypoallergenic.
