Item details

Set of 4 hand made beads each about 10 to 11 mm.
OKAWA = small treasure in the Oshiwambo language.

Our round and lentil shaped beads are hand rolled with earthenware paper clay. The paper burns away during firing leaving our beads about 25% lighter weight.
OKAWA beads are made by women who live in a squatter’s camp near Okahandja Namibia. Bead money allows them to provide basic food and clothes for themselves and their children.

( Note many combinations I have in stock but are just not listed, others would have to be made in Namibia and shipped so would take at least 3 months. A month to make and 2 months to ship.

FAQs

I have many many more beads than listed and usually have at least 2 more sizes in the color and pattern listed. Feel free to ask for what you are looking for. Unless I am in Namibia ( usually 3 months in the North American summer) I will be happy to find what you want and take pictures if needed.
