Krobo beads are special to me; I support their endeavor through Somanya. I love the creativity of these people from the Krobo region of Ghana. Each bead was handmade using primitive techniques; hence, there are no two beads exactly alike. This is what makes them so special and unique. The beads are handpainted to represent symbols or designs of these people. Krobo beads are usually brightly colored and fun. The brass turtle adds an element of interest to this necklace.
The front drop of this necklace is 12" including the turtle. The use wire guards at the clasps to protect the wire from wear or fraying and crimp covers on all crimps adds a finished look.
