TK Glass Beads

Ghana

Each mud fire pit can hold about 50 molds (3 beads/mold) to create about 150 beads. This process enables them to make about 21 necklaces per day.

About 40 people work at this workshop which is located about an hour outside the capital of Accra in a very nice rural setting. The owner and founder of the group is a woman named Florence Asare. Although it is traditional for men to smash, fire, mold and paint the beads, the women are in charge of creating the designs, producing the product and handle most of the sales and marketing. Below is a photo of the sales manager inside the workshop showroom.
