A beautiful, old African Trade Bead from Ghana! The shape and pattern have long represented fertility, the spiral of life, and the endless cycle of humanity.

Perfect as a centerpiece for a masculine beaded necklace, or alone on some hemp string as a conversational pendant.

Time on the planet, travel across the continents, and oxidation have added a perfect patina.

Made by hand from coiled brass wire.

Measures about 2" across and 3/4" wide, with a nice, heavy weight. Come strung on a long run of hand-dyed, organic hemp string.
