Cedi is a charming, low-key, friendly man. He explains his bead-making calmly and shows you all the steps. Then you go to the showroom where the prices are really accessible. We bought lots of things to take back as gifts. This is just such a...More

An excursion to the Cedi Bead Factory is a good way to spend a day, both to see the factory itself and learn about bead making, but also to see the Ghanaian countryside outside of Accra. Depending on the route, the drive is 90-120 minutes...More
