• Genuine Leather, Pearls & Beach Glass
ABOUT AFRICAN BEADS These old white porcelain glass Goomba beads were found in Nigeria and have traveled at least 3 continents dating back to the 1800 and 1900s. Small chips, corrosion and pitting are the natural aged characteristics of these beautiful beads denoting their age and attests to their extensive use and wear. Originally made in Europe.
HOW ARE BEACH GLASS BEADS MADE?
These great beads are made by the People of Ghana, Africa. Powder glass beads 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.
