Many popular Ghana beads date back over one hundred years, having been retrieved from ancient burial grounds. However, if the idea of wearing those from a burial ground does not sit well with you, you may opt for Krobo beads which are produced from other recycled materials such as glass bottles. There are 3 main types of Krobo glass beads: powder glass, translucent and painted glass beads. Krobo beads are ideal for the environmentally conscious shopper who wishes to leave less of a carbon footprint, while still appearing elegant.
