3 strands of vintage Sandcast Recycled Glass Beads strung on raffia about 24″ long. The beads are a real mix of colours and shapes.
These recycled glass beads were handcrafted in Ghana, Africa by crushing old, discarded glass,, adding colorant 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. Ghana is famous for this type of bead.
