Story Behind the Art:
In a small workshop in the city of Aburi, Ghana, the Quaynor family turns recycled glass bottles into whimsical pieces of sculptural art. A craft form practiced mainly by the Krobo people, glass molding is a centuries old practice in West Africa. Beads are an integral part of Krobo life, and play a role in daily transactions and special initiation ceremonies. The head of the Quaynor family, Dan, has been working glass for most of his life. Krobo glass workers pass along their knowledge through apprenticeships or to their own children. Dan's older daughters do much of the glass molding work today.

    I love buying recycled items. Esp. when offered as free trade to artisans. The star is substantial in weight. Not heavey, just that it is not just a flat star. I lose my keys all the time. I don't like the HUGE key rings, as I want to put my keys in my pocket. I know when they are in my pocket of I have set them somewhere as it is big enough to find, but not ridiculous. I find it to be very pretty and very much worth the cost.
