Sand Cast- Ocean Blue
10x12mm Glass Barrel Bead IHD Varies: 1.5-2mm
Made in West Africa in the Krobo Mountains of Ghana, local bead makers use clay molds and kilns to fashion beads baked in the earth. Recycled glass powder is made from old bottles and any available glass, and then poured into molds made from termite clay. A stalk from the Cassava tree is used to form the hole and as the bead is fired the twig burns away, leaving a hole. Each bead is unique, so love the variations in size, shape, and coloring.
