ABOUT GHANA GLASS & UPCYCLING
Beautiful hand finished Bottle Glass beads from Ghana. 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. These beads are a thriving form of payment for the community and are recognized as TRADE BEADS.
Today, they help the economy of Ghana and at the same time are upcycled items- reuse of discarded objects or materials in such a way as to create a product of higher quality or value an the original. Each strand was personally selected from a Fair Trade vendor that is part of a cooperative in Ghana.

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.
