A strand of 72 size 2 (9 mm) Bodom Recycled Glass Beads on string 23″ long. This strand is a charcoal that has an earthy organic feel. The beads are not shiny as the photo depicts (should redo note to self) and charcoal is a good description – smokey and dark. Ghana is famous for these recycled beads made from recycled glass bottles.
These recycled beads were bought directly from the small factory in Accra, Ghana where the artisans hand make the beads in the labor intensive method of their ancestors from crushing glass to baking the final product in wood ovens. The Bead Designer of these beads creates beautiful, very contemporary recycled glass beads.
