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.

    Gorgeous Dark Blue Beads

    These surpassed my expectations. These glass beads are very nice.

    I am extremely happy with them.

    They arrived quickly, and rgwt were very well packaged.

    I highly recommend these, if you are looking for a larger, dark blue glass bead.

    I love these beads. They are real glass and look old and weathered!
