A strand of Sandcast Recycled Glass Beads strung on raffia 32″ long. The beads are around 2x7mm and a mix of light and dark yellow. 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 wood burning earthen oven. Ghana is famous for this type of bead.
