Large Earth Swirl African Recycled Glass Beads
Large beads such as these are hard to find and even harder to find in good condition. The journey from Africa can sometimes be unkind to such large beads!
Decorative beads are made by the Krobo People of Ghana, Africa. Powder glass beads are made by crushing glass to a fine powder and heating it so that the particles fuse together. The glass is then poured into clay molds, with a cassava leaf stem used to make the hole. They are baked in an oven and the glass fuses and the cassava stem burns up. This technique has been used in Africa for centuries.
