These artisan Ocean Aqua Recycled Glass Beads were indigenously produced in Ghana, West Africa. The rich color of these beads comes from colorful recycled glass beverage and medicine bottles that were pulverized into a fine powder. Once the glass material is in powder form it is then poured into a mold of clay and baked in a specialized oven. Think of all of the interesting and fun ways you'll be able to incorporate these Dark Aqua strands into your custom creations! Each handmade strand is about 26" in length. Each individual bead is approximately 10-13 x 12-14mm with a roughly 2mm hole. Shade may vary slightly from photo. Get yours today!
