Our business is rooted in our love of hand craftsmanship, history, and authenticity. We work carefully to source items that are uniquely hand-made as well as hard to find vintage items from remote areas in Africa. Sourced from materials (such as recycled glass and metal) that use low impact, sustainable and ethical processes, we employ artisans and craftspeople in a place rich with bead making history.

We believe in supplying designers and collectors with the most beautiful handmade items that not only have a rich history, but will last for generations. We love these beads and we love seeing beads transform into beautiful jewelry designs. We source directly from the makers so our items are priced at wholesale, but we offer discount prices for bulk orders.
