History of Bamileke beadwork
The gradual and methodical appropriation of the art of beading by women has taken place since the beginning of the 20th century. The Amazonian beadworkers in Bamileke country obtain their beads at the periodic village markets. The beadworker covers each object with a cloth on which she delicately sews the beads.
