Tiny Disk Sandcast Beads
A bracelet sized strand of tiny disk Sandcast Beads strung on string about 8″ long. The beads are 1×5 mm and are royal blue. These recycled glass 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 wood burning earthen oven. Ghana is famous for this type of bead.
There are also larger beads this same oatmeally colour as shown in the last photo..
