Product DescriptionThese great 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. This technique has been used in Africa for centuries. Some strands may not have raffia straw at the top.

Great beads and always fast and reliable service. Thank you.
I love the bead chest and I love the beads I ordered. I've gotten a lot of positive feedback on my jewelry I've made with these beads.
The beads I purchased were available for a fraction of the price they’re sold in stores. I could not be happier with my purchase, and will definitely reorder from The Bead Chest. Not only does the quality of my purchase exceed my expectations, but they arrived promptly. Very satisfied!
I just love the sea glass! Going to make some really great bracelets. And the colors are outstanding. Very happy with this purchase.
My glass beads arrived in a timely manner, were well packed and were exactly as described.
I will shop here again.
