    • New individually handmade recycled glass beads from Ghana, round approx 14-15mm, green
      23-inch strands with approx 47 beads
      Perforations are at least 2mm and the colors work well with each other and other beads. They have a distinctive hand-made quality, with lots of variations.
      These are yet another form of powder glass beads, made by the Krobo people of Ghana. Most people seem to know them this name so I'm using it here.
      The system of making them is a little different, once the powdered glass in the mold start to melt it's removed from the furnace and each bead is stirred into a more or less round shape.
      The Krobo have traditionally been great consumers of beads and today they are probably the most prolific makers in Africa, coming out with new designs every year.
