What is African glass? These recycled glass beads are made by an indigenous people in Ghana, Africa. The glass itself is derived from a variety of recycled sources including old beverage and medicine bottles. The procedure for making the beads consists of a number of steps. The glass is sorted and then crushed into a powder and then poured into clay molds. A cassava leaf stem is placed through the mixture. When the molds are baked in the oven, the glass fuses and the cassava stem burns up. And Voila! a glass bead!
The bracelets in the pictures are for display purposes and your bracelet may vary slightly as each is handmade. Leather may stretch over time and it is recommended to void getting the leather wet to extend the life of the leather.
