Recycled glass beads like these are made using traditional bead-making techniques that have been used for generations by the Krobo people Africa. Glass from various sources such as bottles is first crushed into a fine powder that is poured into a special clay mold and heated in an oven. These rondelle beads are a large size measuring approximately 20mm in diameter with a hole size of 4mm. These would be great as a centerpiece for a necklace or to decorate that favorite room. Each strand is unique and may vary slightly in tone from picture.
I've just recently started purchasing beads from The Bead Chest and have been very happy with all my purchases to date. The beads are beautiful and the service has been incredible with beads being shipped super fast and arriving very well packed...I will definitely be a regular customer going forward!!
