Product Description

Environmentally friendly is one expression that might be used to describe recycled glass beads. These African beads are made from old scrap glass derived from any one of a number of everyday sources. The Krobo people are experts at making these beads in the West African nation of Ghana. The process for making recycled glass beads is very old and is a variant of the better-known powdered glass method. In this method, old glass is pulverized into tiny grains that can subsequently be poured into a specially designed mold. At high temperatures achieved in an oven, the glass grains anneal to form a single and beautiful glass bead.
