Soul of Somanya is a non-profit organization based out of Chattanooga that provides bead and jewelry makers in a village called Somanya in the Krobo region of Ghana a living wage for their beautiful creations.
Melody MacDuffee, co-founder of Soul of Somanya and a nationally known bead artist, author, and instructor, will be here at White Fox Beads for three days in June, teaching classes! While she's here, she will have her haul of beads, findings, and finished jewelry from the artisans of Somanya for sale. Find everything from gemstone cabochons, spacer beads, special symbolic findings and charms, painted Krobo beads, and good luck dolls!
