African Tube Beads

Gorgeous hand painted glass beads from Ghana. Slightly curved large tubes. This design is called gye nyame. The gye nyame symbol is probably the best known adinkra symbol from Ghana. It means “except for god” and signifies the all-knowing power of god. It is used in decorations, clothing, and artwork. It is a reflection of the religious character of the Ghanaian people. It is an image of how we are held in the hands of god.
