White Round Sandcast Beads

A beautiful strand of 14mm white sandcast beads from West Africa. A unique process to Africa that 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.
