Charm bracelets are one piece of jewelry that truly never go out of style, and a fabulous charm bracelet is just what every girl wants! 'African Queen' is an exciting tribal piece, choc full of hand painted African Fancy Krobo Powder Glass Trade beads (Glass is crushed, melted, then formed into a tube or circular shape. Then the bead is hand painted with glass and fused in a second firing- each bead is individually hand crafted and entirely unique) - I combined these with vintage Czech Montana Fire Polished round 8mm Bohemian glass in shades of blue, teal, green and citrine, and smaller Czech frosted seed beads. All of the pretty hand made beaded charms feature sweet little antique brass Tibetan bead caps and are fastened on to a beautiful strong antique gold metal chain. The bracelet closes with a very easy toggle clasp in antique gold and measures a standard 7 1/2 inches long. Capture the beauty and romance of escaping into the savannah. Whatever you wear, however you wear it, your 'African Queen' Charm Bracelet will impress and amaze!

Made with love ♥

Some Cool Facts About the Beads I Used in This Bracelet:

I only use Fairtrade beads.

Each trade bead is handmade. Every single bead is one-of-a-kind.
Bead collectors worldwide appreciate the beauty, originality, durability, and monetary value of African beads.

Powder Glass Trade Beads- These great beads are made by the Krobo Tribe of Ghana, Africa. They are made by crushing glass from bottles or other discarded glass, into a fine powder and heating it so that the particles fuse together. The glass is then poured into clay molds, with a cassava leaf stem used to make the hole. They are baked in an oven and the glass fuses and the casssava stem burns up.

Wearing trade beads is like wearing a piece of history.
Trade beads date back as some of the oldest beads in modern history. Most trade beads have travelled at least three continents, and have been possessed by multiple owners, especially old trade beads. There's nothing more satisfying than wearing a piece of history.

Unlike most of the beads on the market today, trade beads are each made by hand using ancient traditions and techniques. It feels amazing to wear something that was not made by a machine or robot, but rather, by a fellow human.
