A strand of small Bauxite Beads which are 4mm are strung on raffia 22″ long. The beads are polished and have an earthy look. These beads were bought directly from the Beadmakers in Akyem Abompe in Ghana where they are handcrafted in a very labour intensive process starting from mining the bauxite from the nearby hills to drilling the holes. Bauxite Beads are a beautiful mix of Autumn browns ranging from quite a light almost orange brown to a deep rich brown. They give a necklace a natural earth look and feel.
Since these are handmade there are variations amongst the beads so you will get a strand similar to the one in the photo.
