Recycled Glass Beads
Ghana is known for its eco-friendly process for creating recycled glass beads. Scrap and unusable glass products are ground to a fine powder before being poured into clay molds and baked in ovens transforming discarded objects into beautiful glass beads. The process yields particularly vibrant colors and has created a self-sustaining economy for the Ashanti and Krobo tribes in Ghana. African Recycled Glass Beads can be used to create jewelry or placed in a vase as a colorful home accent.
