A beautiful strand of powder glass African beads, made by the people of Krobo Mountain (Ghana, West Africa ), resembling old Venetian FANCY trade beads. The strand is over 40" long . Made from bottles and other glass items that are turned into powder, then into molds in order to create this nice looking beads. Decorations on the beads are made with a paste made of colored glass powder and water, which is applied using a thin wooden stalk. They are cooked a second time to fix the decor. Each strand is unique and may vary slightly from strand pictured.
I was delighted to get this beautiful strand, look at the colors, and be able to go back to the site to wishlist more of a certain style, or buy them right away. It's kind of the Krobos "overview" strand for me. Some recycled glass, and all kinds of different patterned beads. Buy with confidence. This shop prides itself on service and being a great information resource.
