Checkout this beautiful wholesale lot of African Sandcast Beads including one strand each of Coral Red, Amber Yellow, Light Green, Teal, Light Blue, Dark Blue, and Brown beads.The process of making these beads is unique to Africa and has been used for over 1000 years. Pulverized glass of various colors is poured into a clay mold, using a cassava stem for the bead's hole. The mold is placed in a furnace and heated until the glass particles congeal without actually melting and the stem burns out. The Ghanaians have been making beads in this manner since the 1600s.
Each strand usually sells for $7, but through this wholesale purchase, you can get 7 colors for less than $35!
