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.
These Bodoms are football shaped and about 24mm high and 29mm long with a 5mm hole. They are a green with an contemporary geometric design. You would receive one of the Bodoms in the photo. If you have a preference please contact us.
