Ghana is know for its eco-friendly process for creating recycled glass beads. Scrap and unusable glass products are ground to a fine powder before being poured into clay molds and baked in ovens transforming discarded objects into beautiful glass beads. The process yields particularly vibrant colors and has created a self-sustaining economy for the Ashanti and Krobo tribes in Ghana. The recycled glass bead on a loop make a unique addition to any decor. Place around your favorite vase or lamp or place on a coffee table. Each loop is approximately 7" dia x 1/2".
