These beautiful translucent blue and white beads are made by the Krobo People of Ghana, Africa. Powder glass beads are made by crushing glass to a fine powder and heating it so that the particles fuse together. The glass is then poured into clay molds, with a cassava leaf stem used to make the hole. They are baked in an oven and the glass fuses and the cassava stem burns up. Each bead measures approximately 3-5 x 11mm, with a hole size of approximately 3mm. You will receive one strand measuring approximately 22". There are around 110 beads on each strand.
