African recycled rose glass statement necklace. This stunning necklace is made with big Tibetan silver beads and handmade Ghana glass beads. I used big chunky 18mm rose color beads with 14mm red beads and put 12mm antique silver spacer bead discs in between to give them distinction. On the ends are 2 - 5mm Tibetan silver spacer beads. The length is 19 1/2 inches and it is finished with a large antique silver plated lobster clasp. This beautiful ethnic bead necklace with a tribal style to it and will go with anything.
Thank you for shopping with 123 Gemstones, we are a smoke free home.
These beads are made by the Krobo Tribe which is located in 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.
