Recycled Glass Bead Necklace Small
Story behind the product ~ African recycled glass beads are made by members of the Krobo Tribe which is located in Ghana, Africa. These African beads are created by compressing recycled glass into a dry grain, and heating the grain so that the pieces form together. The recycled glass is crushed into a porcelain cast. The stem of a cassava leaf is used to make the hole. It is baked in a furnace causing the glass to melt together and cassava stem to burn. This technique has been used in Africa for centuries to make recycled glass beads.
