Necklace Lula Kuku
This stunning Brass Baule Rooster Bead Pendant has been individually crafted in the traditional design of the Baule Sun. Coming to us all the way from the Ivory Coast, beads like this are becoming increasingly difficult to find.
This necklace is from our exclusive range of jewellery highlighting the beautiful African recycled powder glass beads made by the people of Krobo Mountain in Ghana, West Africa. Many designs of Krobo beads are patterned to resemble old Venetian fancy trade beads. They are made from bottles and other glass items that are turned into powder, then poured into molds in order to create beads. Decorations on the beads are made with a paste made of colored glass powder and water which is applied by hand using a thin wooden stalk. The beads are cooked a second time to fix the decor.
Drawing from her African past, our designer Lula has produced an inspirational and joyful range of Necklaces and earrings.
