60g Glass Beads Powdered Krobo Lampwork Mixed Bead Selection 12mm to 24mm. Recycled glass Krobo mixed beads named after the mountain area in Ghana where they originate.

Manufactured by crushing glass bottles to create a fine powder, coloured with ceramic dyes, before placing into clay moulds. Patterns are created by layering the powder or by painting directly onto a moulded bead then re-fired. The beads holes are created using a cassava stalk which burns away in the kiln.

Being handmade beads sizes and shapes will vary with the mustard washer beads being 12mm in diameter and the blue barrel beads 24mm in length.

This mixed bead selection contains about twenty African Krobo beads.
