  • ABOUT GHANA GLASS

    These beads were once a thirving part of the payment for the community and were recognized as TRADE BEADS. Today, they help the economy of Ghana and at the same time are upcycled - reuse of discarded objects or materials in such a way as to create a product of higher quality or value an the original.  These beads have been personally selected from a Fair Trade Vendor that is part of a cooperative in Ghana.
