  • These beads are made by the Krobo 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 then baked in an oven which causes the glass to fuse together. This technique has been used in Africa for centuries.
