Krobo Beads Bracelets


Ghana is one of the largest producers of beads in Africa. I am very proud to say that the Krobo people are one of the main producers of beads made from recycled glass. On my visit to Ghana in 2021, I visited my grandfather in Somanya, a small Krobo town in the Eastern region. On our way there, we stopped by Cedi Beads, in Odumase Krobo where I met the wonderful, Mr. Cedi, one of Ghana's innovators of recycled glass beads. I fell in love with his work and learned a great deal about the art of making glass beads. 

Our bracelet collection is an Ode to the Krobo people and their beautiful artistry in beads making. Each bead tells a story and each bracelet style is named in honor of a Krobo town. As we share them and a bit of the Krobo culture with you, it is our wish that you will love them as much as we do. 

We now have one of kind recycled glass beads bracelets by Kor.Le.Kour.  

Priscilla Agyeman,  Owner and Curator of Kor.Le.Kour, interlaces her beads with other materials to capture the essence of today’s woman. Her designs aim to be fun, funky, Bohemian and quirky with the core value of being African. She prides herself in sourcing 80% of her beads from the roots just like her grandmother did to ensure the cycle of wealth is maintained locally. She believes in sustainability and the environment and as such workd hard to ensure her products are made from Eco-friendly and or Recycled materials. All of her bracelets are "one of a kind " meaning you're the only one to own your design.
