Handmade with a rustic, irregular finish, these textural recycled glass beads have been made using traditional methods, by recycling discarded bottles & other glass items.  The glass is pulverised into a powder then poured into clay moulds then baked in special ovens.

For this pink colour we feel that the outsides have been sandblasted to achieve the frosted roughened outside of the bead as the inside of the beads where they have been 'sliced' is smooth.  Also the pink colour we think has been dyed as the very inside of the beads looks more clear.

These have quite a large threading hole so lend themselves to all sorts of craft and jewellery making projects being easy to thread onto cords or elastics.  Use them in all styles of jewellery and craft projects, from hanging decorations to catch the light (these beads are especially perfect for hanging to let the sun shine through the transparent glass), to beautiful necklaces bracelets and ear rings.  The list is endless and it's only up to your imagination! 

Javanese (Indonesian) recycled glass beads are highly sought, but a bit difficult to find.
