African Yellow Sandcast Tube Beads

African Yellow Sandcast Tube Beads


These are sandcast glass tube beads in the Akoso style. They were made in Ghana from pulverized glass in yellow. They are a solid yellow tube bead with dot or splash of color in the center of each one. The molten glass is poured into a clay mold and decorated with red and black stripes. These are beautiful beads and will add a wonderful ethnic look to your jewelry. The Ghananians have been making beads in this manner since the 1600s.
