Two bracelet sized strands of about 18 hand painted Recycled Glass Beads strung each string 8″ long. The small beads are about 11×6 mm and are blue with hand painted designs. These recycled glass beads were handcrafted in Ghana, Africa by crushing old, discarded glass,and then pouring the powder into clay molds. The stem of a local plant is added, this burns away during firing, leaving a hole for stringing. The beads are fired in a woodburning earthen oven. The beads are then handpainted with a second firing. Ghana is famous for this type of bead.
