From the villages of Ghana, these beautiful recycled glass beads are made by artisan craftspeople 100% by hand. The beads themselves are made using crushed recycled glass, such as cola bottles, windows, and more. The crushed glass is placed in molds and heated in a fire-wood oven, resulting in these beautiful beads. Each bead measures approximately 3-4 x 10mm, with holes measuring 2mm. Strands are 26" long and contain approximately 125 beads each.
