Ghana Glass Beads Necklace Turquoise (83.1)

African recycled glass beads are made by members of the Krobo people which is located in Ghana. These beads are created by compressing glass into a dry grain, and heating the grain so that the pieces form together. The recycled glass is rushed into a porcelain cast. The stem of a cassava leaf is used to make the hole. It is baked in a furnace causing the glass to melt together and cassava stem to burn. This technique has been used in Africa for centuries to make recycled glass beads.

They each represent a historical culture and used for special ceremonies.  

Beautifully styled on a stand included or you can hang it over a bowl and also wear it.
