About Ghana Glass:
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 to create a matte finish.
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.
