From the villages of Ghana, these beautiful recycled glass beads are made by artisan craftspeople 100% by hand. The beads themselves are made using crushed recycled glass, such as cola bottles, windows, and more. The crushed glass is placed in molds and heated in a firewood oven, resulting in these beautiful beads. Each bead measures approximately 4 x 11mm, with holes measuring 3mm. Strands are 24" long and contain approximately 118 beads each.
