This is a colorful necklace using traditional African colors and African beads The recycled glass beads are imported from Ghana, and are green, red, orange, and purple The brass beads come from Nigeria. Recycled glass beads are also know as powdered glass beads. The process to make them is a unique art form that is very popular in Ghana, Africa. A variety of steps are taken to produce very unique effects that the recycled glass has. Glass is ground and compressed to a fine grain and then heated to form in a mold. Once done, the bead makers may apply paint for additional style and decoration. The beads come on a black, adjustable slip knot necklace. Due to this very hands-on process, no two beads will ever be identical, and slight variations in size, texture, shape, and so on are to be expected.
