Sandcast Beads

$15.00

A strand of about 52 striped, black, red, yellow, and green  Sandcast Recycled Glass  Beads  strung on string 24″ long. The beads are around 12×9 mm. 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.
