  • Powder glass rondelles (aka Krobo, Fused or Sandcast) made in Ghana, olive green 3x13mm
  • 23-inch strands, about 140 beads
  • To make powder glass beads, glass (often recycled) is ground into a fine powder, colorants are added, and the powder is sifted into in clay molds. A twig is inserted to hold the center hole open. The mold is fired until the glass melts just enough to fuse the particles together. The twigs burn away in this process, leaving the hole. Then the beads are removed and cleaned.
  • Color is darker and more olive than it looks in the photo
