These beads originated from what was once Czechoslovakia and were popularly worn at weddings across West Africa.
Wedding beads are handmade from glass, and crafted into beautiful designs with vivid colors. Collectors enjoy acquiring wedding beads because of their boldly striking stripes. These beads come in beautiful shapes such as triangular shapes, bulbous shapes and elongated shapes, and are strung in a way that enables them to swivel around the cord.
No longer the preserve of African traditional wedding ceremonies, African wedding beads are today finding their way in modern-day wedding settings around the world. Because the beads are handmade, the blushing bride can rest assured that she will have a very unique strand for her own wedding day.
