Item details


Lo and behold: the world's most eco-friendly beads. Pioneered by members of the Krobo tribe in Ghana, these beautiful beads are made using recycled glass bottles. That's right! Beer, wine, and cola bottles are crushed down to a fine powder before being recycled into these eco-friendly treasures.

While others sell a few beads at this price, we're offering a full strand!

- Handmade from recycled glass bottles
- Beads are 12-14 x 12-14mm, with hole size of
- You receive a full strand of approximately 45 beads

Let's be real -- these days, it's easy to find machine-made, mass-produced beads from China and India, but beauties like these are far and few between. The process of making these beads is passed down from generation to generation, and the quality of work is apparent not only through their radiant beauty, but through the minor imperfections as well.

We are one of the few direct importers of recycled glass beads, and so we pass on our savings to you. Please inquire about bulk pricing for 20 strands or more.
