LB Beads was formed by Lolonyo Amegayibor-Bunge in 2017. The brand aims to handcraft designs that are unique, wearable pieces of art made with ethically sourced beads.
Founder Lolonyo is half German and half Ghanaian, and she's lived in the UK since 2004. While on maternity leave she did a mini bead-making workshop in Ghana with Kati Torda, and her long-standing love of beads began to grow. After visiting her parents in Ghana in 2016 Lolonyo crafted a piece for herself from the beautiful and diverse beads she found there. She got so many compliments on her new jewellery that she founded LB Beads to share her designs and her love of beads with everyone.
