A strand of 74 translucent aqua blue Recycled Glass Beads strung on string 21″ long. These beads are size 2 (about 7 mm in diameter). The beads are unpolished and natural. Photos don’t do these beads justice as they are translucent so it seems somehow the camera can’t quite catch them! And in this particular case more than others. This blue is very similar to the Lucent Blue but with a tinge of green that reminds me of the tropical sea… the photo just doesn’t catch this. They are handmade so colour, size and shape vary.
These recycled glass beads were purchased straight from the small factory which hand crafts them using the methods of their ancestors, from crushing recycled bottles all the way to firing them in a wood burning oven.
