Recycled Glass (Yellow and Green) Beads - These beads are made by the Krobo Tribe in Ghana, Africa. Used bottles, old windows, and broken tiles are ground into a fine powder and then placed into a clay mold. The stem of a cassava leaf is used to form the hole, and then baked in an oven. When removed from the oven, the cassava stem has burned up and the finished glass beads are then polished by hand and ready to be made into jewelry. Recycled glass produces 20% less air pollution and 50% less water pollution than creating new glass.
