Okawa Beads


These vibrant beads are the product of a charming beadmakers' collective in Namibia.  Ladies at the beadmaking shop hand roll and shape delightful beads, pendants, ornaments and more!  After the desired shape is achieved, the ceramic can then be fired in a kiln (the entire camp shares one small kiln) and after cooling they are hand-painted with striking colors and lovely patterns!  These beads are truly contemporary masterpieces of southern Africa and will make a great addition to your next jewelry design!  And a portion of the profits for these beads is sent right back to the collective the beads came from.
