Item details


Hailing from the villages of Ethiopia, these beautiful copper beads carry the story of a world far from our own. Each of these small beads is handcrafted with care & love by the Oromo people in Southern Ethiopia. They can be used as spacers or accents alike and are a must-have for any serious jewelry designer.

We are offering a full strand of these beads at a bargain price.

- 30" strand of beads, handmade with copper
- Beads measure about 4 x 10mm
- You will receive approximately 75 beads per strand

Let’s be real -- these days, it’s easy to find machine-made, mass-produced beads from China and India, but beauties like these are far and few between. The process of making these beads is passed down from generation to generation, and the quality of work is apparent not only through their radiant beauty, but in the minor imperfections as well.

We are one of the few direct importers of Ethiopian metal beads, and we are able to pass on our savings to you. Please inquire about bulking pricing for 30 strands or more.



Kofi’s African Beads is your one-stop-shop for wholesale beading supplies. We offer beautiful, eco-friendly beads with a real story behind them. Our mission is to empower independent artisans in Africa while at the same time providing inspiration for your unique jewelry designs.

We specialize in working with wholesale buyers and professional jewelry designers, but launched this Etsy store so that the general public could enjoy our unique offerings as well.

If you are a professional designer in need of bulk pricing, please send us a private message and we’ll be glad to give you more personalized service.

These are fabulous and unique! I've never seen beads like this before, so they will make a piece definitely one of a kind! They have a very rich the folded aspect in the bead, and thank you for fast shipping! It traveled from coast to coast quickly, and that's appreciated!
