Welcome to Funky Frog
African beads and more!
Welcome to your very own virtual African Market … Funky Frog travels to Ghana to bring back African Beads and more…. Dela, guide extraordinaire, and I have combed the markets looking for new, exciting finds. We have visited many Bead Artisans making it possible to buy beads directly from the source … Funky Frog’s selection of African handcrafted beads is an eclectic selection made of glass, metals, bone, tree resin, wood, seeds, clay, shell, even rocks and stones!!! So for those of you who are looking for unique beads to incorporate into your own jewelry check out Funky Frog’s page – Beads…..
Funky Frog brings Africa to you!!!… Remember every bead you buy means Funky Frog can get more beads from the Traders and Bead Artisans of Ghana….
Funky Frog creates jewelry using these gorgeous African beads … Not only is each piece created lovingly by hand in Montreal, each bead is unique and handcrafted in Africa. You can see the jewelry on Funky Frog’s page – Jewelry.
Baskets + Curios
During our Bead Trips we have traveled all over Ghana including to the Bolgatanga region known for its Bolga Baskets .. We fell in love with a Basket Initiative called Baba Tree and have brought home many of their gorgeous wares. Ghana is also known for its Batik Fabric and because many people asked for it, we brought home some gorgeous pieces .. And of course at the markets Traders come from all over Africa so some of Africa’s wonderful curios have found their way here .. all this in our page – Curios …

But, what is quickly evident when you read the Blogs, the beads and baskets that Funky Frog brings to Canada are just a part of the whole story. Going to Ghana, West Africa had me leaping out of my box! And outside the box as a leapFrog I have met so many wonderful people who are working quietly and selflessly to make a difference.
