A beautiful natural accessory as a decoration
This beautiful African recycled glass beads necklace on standard (color turquoise) is made by members of the Krobo Tribe. The beads are made by pressing glass into dry sand and heating it so that the pieces of glass form. The recycled glass is then poured into porcelain molds. The stem of a mania blade is used to make the hole in the bead. The glass beads are baked in an oven so that the glass melts and the manioc stalk burns.
Age-old technique, a beautiful story
This technique has been used in Africa for centuries to make recycled glass beads.
The bead plays an important role in the cultural life of the African population. It is a tradition passed on by the ancestors who cherish and appreciate the bead – both as a symbol of wealth and as a commodity. From antique to modern, the bead has been transformed into an internationally popular decoration item. Order this beautiful turquoise recycled glass beads necklace on a standard today.
