Check out this beautiful strand of dark grey Ashanti glass saucer beads. Decorative bead strands are a simple way to incorporate handmade goods into your home styling. Drape them over a stack of books or the edge of a bowl/box, or lay them gracefully on a table surface for added texture, color and interest. This easy technique will elevate your space with a lovely designer touch. 

How They Are Made:

The process of making these beads is unique to Africa and has been used for over 1000 years. Pulverized glass of various colors is poured into a clay mold, using a cassava stem for the bead's hole. The mold is placed in a furnace and heated until the glass particles congeal without actually melting and the stem burns out. The Ghanaians have been making beads in this manner since the 1600s.
