Ghana's beautiful beads - recycling at its best

Beads made in Ghana

 

The beads that are made in Ghana are unique and beautiful. Some types are quite rare and valuable.

Did you know that the glass beads are made by grinding old glass (window louvres, bottles etc) into powder and firing them in clay moulds?

Visit a bead factory to see this unique process. It seems Ghana can teach the world a thing or two about recycling!

Click here to see our Bead listings - you will see that some factories do demonstrations. Call ahead to confirm. It's a great outing!
