These are rustic topaz colored recycled glass beads. These beads are 13-14mm in size and were made by the Krobo People of Ghana, Africa. Powder glass beads are made by crushing glass to a fine powder and heating it so that the particles fuse together. The glass is then poured into clay molds. They are strung on traditional raffia and could be worn as is or restrung. These special beads are made using an old method that has been used for centuries. The glass itself is derived from a variety of recycled sources including old beverage and medicine bottles.
