Recycled glass beads from remote West African villages.
Out of stock
I was cycling through a small village in Mali the first time I saw these recycled beads being made. I was fascinated.
The process starts with ground up glass which is then layered into clay molds. The beads are fired in a kiln until the glass fuses.
These glass beads are strung with old Ethiopian silver beads for a truly one-of-a-kind necklace.
You can pick this piece up from my studio in Boise, or I will happily ship it free of charge.
