Ashanti Saucers- Bright Turquoise
14x5mm Glass Disc IHD: 2.5mm
Made in Ghana by the Ashanti People, these beads are still being manufactured today the same way they were dating back to the 1600’s. Each bead is made from molten, glass powder poured into clay molds…one bead at a time. Originally used as currency in Africa until modern time, there’s a good chance the original saucers were used as payment in trade for goods and services. Imported from Africa. Expect variation in color, shape and hole size.
Sold in package of 10 beads.
