  • Each Salmon colored bead measures approximately 2.5-3 x 10-11mm in size, with strands measuring approximately 26"
  • 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.
  • We chose these beads to support our beloved friend Dawn and her precious son, Waylon’s organization called: LOVING WAY. the process of how they are made reminds us of the fiery trials she and Way have not only survived but thrived in and through.
  • 10% of each purchase will go to support Loving Way Foundation
