Item details

The beads string comes in 8 inches length with 13/15 beads. They measure approx 12/13 mm.diameter x 16/18 mm., with a 2-3 mm hole that accommodate thicker stringing materials as leather or hemp.

Pic 2: white and blue (sold out)
Approx. net weight is 45/50 grams.

Please note, these are handmade beads. Part of the beauty is that they are all different and show the beautiful craft in making them. Because of this, every bead is different and special.

Recycled glass beads are made by crushing old glass (from old bottles, windows, etc) into powder, which s then heated and poured into clay molds. A leaf stem (cassava) is used to make a hole. As the beads are oven backed, glass fuses and the stem burn away.
The bead making technique has been used in Africa for centuries. It results in a beautiful, rough, primitive appearance with a texture similar to sea glass.
