These beautiful recycled glass beads are handmade by artisans in the West African country of Ghana. Each bead is individually handcrafted through a traditional process passed down generation to generation. The steps involve crushing glass into tiny pieces, placing it in a mold, and then heating the crushed glass at high temperatures in a clay oven. Different types of glass are used including old cola bottles, broken tiles and windows, and other types of repurposed glass. The beads on this strand measure approximately 9-10 x 10-11mm with a hole size of approximately 2mm. Each strand measures about 28" long. Coloration may vary slightly from photo.

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.
