Recycled glass beads are a type of indigenously produced African bead from Ghana West Africa. These beautiful azul color recycled beads are made using an old method that has been used for centuries. The glass itself is derived from a variety of recycled sources including old beverage and medicine bottles. The procedure for making the beads consists of a number of steps whereby powdered glass is poured into molds of clay and baked in a specialized oven. These beads are produced in large part by the Krobo tribe and through recycling glass are environmentally friendly. Due to handmade nature of beads, shade of blue may vary slightly from strand to strand. Some strands may not have raffia.
I really like them! It was my first time so I believe I ordered a little too small, next time I won't be so afraid and will order a bigger size. I was amazed at how quickly they arrived, perfectly packed and protected. Very pretty, I will order again for sure!
These beads are really lovely. I might not be as good as I should be about rating all the beads I receive from you, but you really should know that I love each order that I get from you. thank you for having such a wide selection and choices; unmatched by most other companies.
