The market at Agormenya, Krobo Odumase is always busy with locals and visitors
Its charm and exquisite colorations can be seen a sight away from the stalls
There in this market place, the beads' matron sits - surrounded by beads of all colors
As buyers come, they are sometimes instantly recognized
Old friends or tourists or other artists come, seeking to add more beauty to nature do always come to purchase beads
The beads on their own, fo course, are already gorgeous
Because they have been formed and perfected by centuries of art and craftmanship
Produced only in this region of the Krobos of Ghana
Even the young are sometimes enlisted in the effort
This being no child labor abuse. Just an effort to establish the work ethic early
Take time to visit the "Beads Market" at Agomenya, Krobo Odumase.
The next time you are in Ghana.
