Stunning sea glass! These tricolored (royal blue, amber, and clear) recycled glass beads are made in Ghana by the Krobo tribe using a unique glass making technique that have been used for centuries. This ancient way of making these glass beads creates beautiful cloudy natural handmade effect that resembles ocean bottles washed up on shore. 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.
