Large White Sandcast Beads

$18.00

A strand of about 38 White Faceted Irregular shaped  Sandcast Recycled Glass  Beads  strung on string 22″ long. The beads are around 10×16 mm but vary in size and shape.

These recycled glass beads were handcrafted in Ghana, Africa by crushing old, discarded glass, adding colorant and then pouring the coloured powder  into  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.
