Drilled Tiger Sea urchin spines with a beautiful strand of powder glass African beads, made by artisans in Ghana, West Africa. Many designs are made from bottles and other glass items that are turned into powder, then poured into molds in order to create these round shaped beads. Decorations on the beads are made with a paste made of colored glass powder and water which is applied by hand using a thin wooden stalk. The beads are cooked a second time to fix the decor. Each bead is unique and will measure approximately 11-12mm in diameter.
