Recycled glass beads made using century-old techniques by Krobo tribe members in Ghana, Africa. Includes stand.
A tradition handed down by tribe forefathers who cherished and valued the bead - both as a symbol of wealth and as a trade item.
These African beads are created by compressing recycled glass into a dry grain and heating the grain. The recycled glass is then rushed into a porcelain cast and baked in a furnace over cassava stem fire, causing the glass to melt together. Once the glass bead has set, a cassava leaf steam is used to make the hole.
The bead plays an important role in the cultural life in Krobo tribe society, be it in rituals of birth, coming of age, marriage, or death.
Necklace length: 84cm
Bead size: 4-4.5cm diameter
Stand height: 46cm
Please note, artisan crafted and due to its handmade nature no two alike. Variations are likely and celebrated.
Humidity causes mould to grow. Limited airflow and moisture create a microclimate for mould to develop. In some cases, mould will begin growing on furniture, clothing and other contents within the home.
In instances when this occurs, it is not an inherent fault of the furniture, clothing and other contents; rather, humidity or dampness in the air can supply enough moisture for mould growth on any surface. Mould can occur anywhere, and humid climates provide the optimal conditions for the fungi to grow and thrive on any surface.
Every Uniqwa piece has a story…
Our collections are mostly individually hand-made pieces. As most of our products are made from natural materials, texture, colour, and pattern may vary from piece to piece. Reclaimed timbers, naturally weathered materials and off-cuts otherwise discarded are frequently part of Uniqwa design features.
Natural splitting, cracking, and loss of natural oils may occur and form part of the characteristics and beauty of Uniqwa products. These are not viewed as imperfections or faults but as part of timber's natural life and beauty.
We believe the result of using natural materials and hand-crafted elements is a testament to the unique qualities found in materials originating from nature.
As every monitor displays different colour tones, the colour of pictures on our website and social media cannot be taken as a true colour indication of the actual products. Some product tones may appear to vary from catalogue or website images.
