Sandcast Beads


A strand of 107 small Sandcast Recycled Glass Beads strung on raffia 36″ long. The beads are between 5-7×7 mm and are a mix of colours; green, yellow and red. These Sandcast Beads 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.
