These African powder glass beads are made by crushing recycled glass to a fine powder and heating it until it fuses together. The glass powder is poured into clay molds, with a cassava leaf stem used to make the hole. They are then baked in an oven and the glass fuses as the cassava stem burns up. The result is a beautiful bead with a rough sea glass texture.
Brass is very durable, but patinas very easily, so we recommend keeping it out of the water. Polish with a jewelry polishing cloth before each wear to bring back it's bright golden luster.
