hi everybody

few years ago I was looking for beads for my dreads and I was always finding wood or metal beads and I was looking for colorfull beads. When I was searching on the net I found beads makers in west Africa who were making recycling glass beads for neckalces and earings called KROBO. It was very nice and I asked some of them if they could do few for dreadz. But they didn't succed due to the bigger hole and the way they were working and the difficulty to change it. I realize that their beads were imitating the millefiori trade beads coming from Venice that served during the slavery trade, So I decided to see if they were bead makers around me and I took glass classes to realize my own beads.

So I put my own glass beads to decorate my dreads...and now I sell them too.

I'd really love to have your opinion on my work, Let me know what you think about my job because many people tell me that my beads are nice but I don't sell a lot and I wanted to why?

May be the price is a little bit expansive but there are unique and precious beads ...and they spend more then six hours in a special kiln... Well need your help to understand

Thank you
