Handmade beach glass jewelry has become a staple in the jewelry world today. Powder glass beads are made from finely ground glass, but its main sources are broken bottles and a variety of scrap glass.
This glass yields different soft colors and shiny surfaces. Most of these handmade pieces are known to infuse a feeling of uniqueness and individuality. Beach glass beads in our designs are made in Africa by the Krobopeople of Ghana. They are made by crushing glass to a fine powder and heating it so that the particles fuse together. The glass is then poured into clay molds, with a cassava leaf stem used to make the hole. They are baked in an oven and the glass fuses and the cassava stem burns up. This technique has been used in Africa for centuries.

#2. The Time Spent
It usually takes a great amount of time for most jewelry makers to produce a piece of handmade jewelry. Once they have a design to work with, it may take more time to finally produce it. There is usually a whole lot of care and attention that is put into each piece of jewelry.
