Beads of Bold Colour, Very Fashionable African Glass Beads

The value of beads transcend fashion.  The jewellery of choice that adds value, class and statement beyond the traditional setting, glass beads continue to be a beautiful accessory that can elevate your game a few modest notches.

Beads may be made from recycled paper or plastic, wood, glass or brass, stone or bone. The glass beads however are usually pressed glass made by placing ground glass into molds and heated till molten to achieve the desired shapes. There are three main types of glass beads, Translucent Beads, Powder Glass Beads and Painted Glass Beads.

The Krobo Beads known for their bold hues and chunky units have gained mainstream acceptance as elegant fashion accessories. These include the 6mm and 10mm round beads that veritably embody African Art. Here I have assembled some pictures of beads in their full glory.  Share your comments below if you own any or will wear them.
