Christmas Beaded Star Rainbow

These beautiful rainbow star ornaments are lovingly handcrafted by women in Ghana. The painted beads are made from recycled glass, which are then strung between a wire framework and hung with a wire loop and raffia tie. The beadmakers are typically family run businesses in villages scattered throughout the Odumase Krobo area of Ghana. These businesses empower women by increasing their financial independence, which in turn allows them to support their families, improve family health send their children to school. 

Approx 10cm to top of top bead.
