Item details

These beads are LARGE, measuring 19-20mm in diameter. These are almost opaque matte charcoal black color. They are recycled glass beads, made in Ghana by the Krobo tribe by using a unique glass making technique that dates back several centuries. This ancient way of making these glass beads creates beautiful natural handmade effect. The Krobo tribes's process is grinding up found vintage glass bottles into a powder and pouring into clay casting for baking.

Not only are these beautiful but are fair trade using only recycled glass, so the making process is great for the environment. Because these are casted and handmade there are some chips, cracks and irregularities.

Bead Size: 19-20mm x 17-19mm
Hole Size: 3-4mm
Strand Length: 26"
