A beautiful strand of powder glass African beads, made by the people of Krobo Mountain (Ghana, West Africa), reproducing old Venetian FANCY trade beads. Made from bottles and other glass items that are turned into powder, then poured into molds in order to create this nice looking cylindrical 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. The beads are handmade.

Love my purchase but I haven't had a chance to create with them! I will be a forever shopper though! The service was wonderful!
Love these. Convey the African style to the jewelry and can mix with solid colors for a great look. I think using combining only a few with other beads gives it a higher end look as if to stay these decorative beads are much more expensive than the others which makes product look high end.
Great condition. As always super fast shipping with great packaging.
Wonderful Beads. Just as described!
These beads are bigger and much rougher than I thought
Not as nice as pictured.
I have loved every single thing ive gotten from the bead chest!!!!
Excellent service, price & quality
