Beads: These beautiful agate stone beads have been strung with African glass and brass beads.
The brass beads are made by the 'lost wax' method, in which the mould is destroyed each time a bead is made, making each bead a one-off little work of art.

Fastening: The necklace is finished with a handmade brass hook and ring from Ghana.

Gifts: I can send to another address and include a handwritten message if requested.

Postage: I can usually post within 24 hours and postage is free.

Presentation: Your purchase will be sent in a presentation box ready to give to someone special (or to keep for yourself ).

Environment: All of my outer packaging is either recycled or reusable.

I have seen old men grinding agate by hand, rubbing each bead on a stone to gradually shape it, before starting work on the hole through the middle. As the hole is worked first from one end and then the other, the beads are quite difficult to thread and don't always sit square. Making these beads is a slow, careful process and so their value is great.
