Technique for making powder glass beads from Ghana:
All the steps described below are hand made. Recycled glass is ground to a fine powder using a mortar and pestle. Glass powders of various colours are layered into clay moulds and melted in a traditional kiln. After cooling, beads are polished by rubbing them together with sand and water on a smooth stone.
