Product Description

These 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.

Better Than Expected

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!
