Crushed Glass Disc Beads: made in Ghana from recycled glass in various colors that is crushed and pulverized - then poured into a clay mold, using a cassava stem for the bead's hole. The mold is placed in a furnace and heated until the glass particles congeal without actually melting and the stem burns out. The Ghanaians have been making beads in this manner since the 1600s.
Recycled Ammunition: bullet casings and mixed metals are recycled and melted down. The mold are carved by hand to fashion each unique bead. Most recycled ammunition beads are sourced with our partners in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
