Beautiful super jumbo-sized rose recycled glass SINGLE bead. 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. Each bead is unique and may vary in size and shape with minor variations in color. Hole size and shape will show some irregularity due to the way the beads are made. This extra large jumbo-sized bead may be used as a pendant, for macrame, or other design project.

    Love these beads

    Every single bead is beautiful and exactly what I hoped. Each bead has a story to tell; combining them for a single piece of jewelry is fascinating and rewarding. I am very happy that I stumbled across the Bead Chest on line. Thank you for offering a quality product.
