This stop is always on my list. Anytime anyone asks me about this shop I take them there myself. Fresh souvenirs and always beautiful. Tiny shop but the customer service is excellent and the necklaces are one of a kind.

Kati Torda knows her beads and her creations are both traditional and contemporary. She's a walking encyclopedia on Ghanian beads, having spent more than 25 years studying and collecting beads from all over the country. Do make time to visit her store.
