Product Description

These great 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 in to clay molds, with a cassava leaf stem use to make yhe hole. They are baked in a oven and the glass fuses and the cassava stem burns up. This technique has been used in Africa for centuries. Exact mix of beads may vary slightly from photo.
