These beautiful glass beads can be styled in many ways, and add a lovely softness wherever they are used! Drape them over a vase or in a bowl, layer them on top of a stack of books or tray on a coffee table, or add them on a shelf or in a flat lay.
Listing is for one 24" strand of 18mm brownish grey recycled glass beads strung on raffia cord.
The beads are handmade by artisans in Ghana from recycled glass. Bottles, old windows, and other glass materials are first crushed into small pieces, and then put into clay molds. Once they have filled the molds they are placed into a very hot kiln where the glass is baked for 20 to 45 minutes. Half way through the baking process the artisan removes the molds to poke holes in the beads. Once the beads are removed from the oven, they are left to cool, and then hand polished using a sand and water technique.
