I’m not sure if you’ve seen these but I’m seeing them everywhere! They’re called African Krobo beads, and they’re made from recycled glass.
They definitely make a statement for a creative necklace, but I’ve been seeing them as home accessories! They look really neat staged on top of a book, in a bowl, laid on a table, or anywhere your heart desires.
After seeing all the different colors, my mind was boggled on how they actually made these. I did some research and it’s very inventive! They’re made in Ghana, Africa, mainly in the Krobo Mountain area- hints the name Krobo Beads. They make clay molds and put tiny pieces of glass shards, or hammered glass powder, in the mold.
Then it goes into the termite clay kiln to bake at 1500-1830 degrees F, for 30-45 minutes. Not sure about you, but I think I would stay far far away!
