In Africa, these Bodom beads are held in the highest esteem and usually only worn for celebrations, funerals, and are often buried with the dead. There is much folklore about their magical powers as well.
These impressive beads are still being made today in the same painstaking and labour intensive way as the ancestors. To see these beads being made please check out the blog, the Bodom.
A strand of 26 green bodoms with very contemporary geometric designs. Each Bodom is about 25 mm wide by 30 mm long with a 5 mm hole. These Bodoms were sourced directly from the Bead Artisan in Ghana, West Africa. As a strand they are gorgeous and impressive.
