Glass beads small - dark green

Glass beads small - dark green


Nothing gets wasted in Africa!
These beautiful beads are made from recycled glass by the Ashanti and Krobo people in the Krobo region. Beads still play a very prevalent role in modern Krobo culture. For example, beads are used in ceremonies of birth, coming of age, marriage, or death and are generously displayed in festivals and parades.
Powder glass beads are made by crushing glass to a fine powder and heating it so that the particles fuse together. The glass is then poured into clay molds, with a cassava leaf stem used to make the hole. They are baked in an oven and the glass fuses and the cassava stem burns up. This technique has been used in Africa for centuries.
We put the beads on a stand to create a great interior object.
