In Ghana, glass bottles are hammered into small pieces and the broken shards are placed into handmade clay molds. After melting them in the fire, the color can be modfied, then these beads are removed and hand rolled in sand and water to create a matte finish.
This design has been embelished with a large silver tone brass bead with a double Dorjee for good luck. Asymetrically set, there are also brass rings from Africa and antique brass beads seperate each glass bead. Limited Edition. Earrings sold seperately.
Each piece is handmade and are all organically shaped. Small variations and marks made from sand will appear on the beads but add to their beauty. The handmade brass discs are organically shaped as well and vary slightly in size. No two will be exactly alike but the image pictured is a likeness of what you will receive.
Color Description: These pretty beads are an ocean greenish blue color.
ABOUT GHANA GLASS & UPCYCLING
These beads were once a thriving 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.
