“Tiny Handmade Glass Beads for Unique Creations – #26”


5 in stock


Explore our exquisite collection of handmade powder beads, each measuring approximately 4 x 4 mm. A single strand boasts around 300+ tiny glass beads, providing a generous length of approximately 32 inches (80 cm). Ideal for crafting unique jewellery or traditional waist beads in West Africa.

Crafted from recycled glass, these beads undergo a meticulous process involving crushing old glass, heating the powder, and pouring it into clay molds. A cassava leaf stem serves as the bead’s hole, burning away during the oven-baking process. This traditional African technique, utilized for centuries, results in a stunningly rough and primitive appearance, akin to sea glass.

Immerse yourself in the artistry of these beads, a testament to both cultural heritage and eco-friendly craftsmanship.
