Checkout this beautiful strand of greyish blue color Ashanti glass saucer beads. The process of making these beads is unique to Africa and has been used for over 1000 years. Pulverized glass of various colors is poured into a clay mold, using a cassava stem for the bead's hole. The mold is placed in a furnace and heated until the glass particles congeal without actually melting and the stem burns out. The Ghanaians have been making beads in this manner since the 1600s. Each bead measures approximately 13-14mm in diameter. Note this is a longer strand. Great value!

    These beads will be great for my designs

    The beads are beautiful. I look forward to using them in my designs. I've never worked with saucer beads before, but have always liked the look of them from online pictures.

    GORGEOUS!

    Great color ... The beads are actually the color of the photo on their site. 5 stars for that alone, IMHO.
