Ashanti beads are also known as "talking beads". They get their name from the distinct sounds produced by different shaped beads. The beads are meant to rattle together when a person moves. The name of the beads comes from where they are made, in the Ashanti region of Ghana. While Ashanti beads are traditionally worn as jewelry, they can also serve as a decorative accent when placed around a pillar candle or vase to create a subtle textured accent.
