Bead Names: Africa

Beads get their names from many sources. Most of those in Africa are as a result of the user naming a bead.

Some named beads are very valuable, such as the ones linked in this paragraph. Two, Bodom and Akosu are beads worn by kings. Another, the Aggrey bead and its cognates, has changed names over time and the name has even referred to different beads.
