The Krobo necklace is the signature design of Stephanie Leigh. It combines artistry, upcycled and recycled materials, color theory, and even psychology. The beads lie flat, instead of hanging, so they feel comfortable and soothing against the chest. Wearing a Krobo necklace grounds you into yourself, holds space for you to move authentically in the world.
Krobo beads, made by the Krobo people throughout the southeastern region of Ghana, from recycled glass (mostly bottles). These beads were originally used as currency. Each one is made by hand in a labor-intensive process of pulverizing glass, mixing it with natural dyes, and heating it to a temperature to mold the beads. The hole is formed by sticking a cassava leaf through the center. Every Krobo bead is elegant and unique.
Upcycled leather, from furniture scrap remnants from a local maker. This scrap material is too small for the furniture designs, but perfectly repurposed for Stephanie Leigh Jewelry. All leather is of a specific leather density, hand-selected and then hand cut and tooled for every piece of jewelry.
Color theory, which evokes patterns found in nature or by human creation. Colors have their own energetic imprint, their unique vibration and resonance. They can serve as reminders of special memories. They can hold space for how you present yourself to the world.
