Beads: The five large glass beads were made in the Himalayas, probably in Nepal. The are similar to the millefiori beads trade beads that were sent out to Africa from Venice between the 1880s and 1920s. The brass beads are from Ghana.

History: Beads have been made in Ghana for centuries and the brass beads are part of that tradition, being made in small quantities in local villages, - not in factories! The brass has been melted down and poured into clay molds before a second layer of clay is applied. The hot brass melts the wax and takes its place inside the mould and means that each individual bead is unique.

When you wear this necklace you will be wearing a collection of small works of art - and you won't see another one quite like it.

Style: It can be worn by men or women and has been strung on a leather cord.
