I paid less than $20 for all. I like them, so that's ok.
Oh, you say Krobo. Ok.
Seller had some genuine oldie Venetians, so I was hopeful.
Yes they are beautiful. Undoubtedly made in Africa, in Ghana, in Krobo, by people working in Somanya who were born in the village of Tsyebite, Nomodo Djaba known as "Cedi" and others in Krobo region started recreating the style of old "bodom" or Akosua beads by following the same techniques of their fathers and grandfathers in crushing to power old beads and fusing and winding the glass, in the 1990s or 2000 maybe, initially in the old colours of yellow... these are blue so they have moved beyond imitation, to use the same traditional technologies to create something new. As a craftsman from a bead-making tradition, Cedi would enjoy the experimentation and exploration. Enjoy them as lovingly created pieces of art. As for value - what price is your pleasure, for me they are priceless.
I sometimes have problems understanding bead sizes.
These rounds are as large as a golf ball and twice as heavy!
