Huge, handmade, recycled, luminescent blue Krobo, African glass bead (36mm X 24mm), 20.5" long necklace. Made from recycled glass by Krobo artists in Ghana, the centuries old technique crushes glass to a fine powder and reheats it until the particles fuse together. The glass is then poured into clay molds and a cassava leaf stem is used to make the hole. They are baked in an oven during which the cassava stem burns up. Finally, these Krobo beads have been strung together using a laborious, macrame technique.

To have survived to the present, these beads have been cherished by their previous owners. To best care for this necklace, it is recommended that you store it flat and separate from other jewelry to reduce the chance of damage to your beads. We hope you enjoy and treasure your necklace as much its previous owners have!
