Origin and Culture of African Ethnic Jewelry 

The colors of most beads are caused by a form of iron oxide, which is naturally occurring in Africa. The finished product contains no dyes or paints and is completely natural. It is also very durable; when subjected to extreme heat or cold, it will not change color or crack. 

For instance, the Blue Talhakmit bead is a handcrafted glass bead produced by the Talhati tribe, one of the largest ethnic groups in West Africa. Some beads are mainly produced by women of the tribe, who use techniques passed on from their mothers and grandmothers to create this remarkable bead.

Most of these distinctive beads were originally made for tribal jewelry but have now become popular with modern designers and collectors all over the world. Because they come from such a remote and relatively unknown area, they are not readily available and may only be purchased directly from African artisans through fair trade organizations.



Another important jewelry material is Sisal fiber. This is one of the strongest fibers known to man. These are made by hand by the Swazi people of Southern Africa. They are very durable and great for everyday wear. 

The bracelets are woven from Sisal, a plant that grows wild in southern Africa. The Sisal plant has been used for many years by the Swazi people to create items for their everyday use. These bracelets have been worn by generations of Swazis for ceremonies, dances, rituals, festivals, and other special occasions.

Copper is used for making a very unique and stunning bracelet. The Ethiopian Prayer Copper beads, for example, is one of a kind, as it was handmade by Ethiopian artisans. It is made from beads and copper wires and measures 26 inches long. Each bead has a different pattern and color which makes this stand out from the rest.

There are many different styles and designs of prayer beads, but the most notable style is the one that is hand-woven with colored yarns. The strands of yarn are then covered by glass beads, which are believed to protect against bad spirits and reaffirms African’s stand on spirituality.
