Tangerine Hand Painted Recycled Glass Disk Bead Necklace
Amazing large glass bead necklace. The beads are handcrafted in Ghana, Africa in tangerine, yellow and blue recycled glass, with a delicate and detailed painted pattern. The clasp is a lovely sterling silver and enamel fish box clasp, fittings are all sterling silver. This is a stunning bead, the pattern is detailed and neatly painted. This is a large bead and a bold necklace.
The beads are handmade, vintage recycled-glass beads from Ghana called Krobo beads. They are crafted from recycled glass bottles; broken into chips or ground to a fine powder in a mortar and pestle, they are kiln fired in clay moulds in patterns or hand decorated in layers and fired between each layer, so each bead is a slightly different shape and pattern. These necklaces are newly strung on sturdy c-lon with a new sterling silver tab clasp. They are bright and bold African bead necklaces that look fantastic with a few on together in different patterns.
