Delicate, contemporary, minimalist necklace with recycled glass Ghanaian beads
This delicate, contemporary, minimalist necklace is perfect for elevating any outfit, would be a great addition to a wedding outfit. The patterned beads are made from recycled glass bottles and the chain is sterling silver.
Made from 100% recycled glass bottles crushed and reformed into beads by Ghanaian beadmaking artisans. Every stage of the bead creation involves true craftsmanship. Each individual bead is made completely by hand; ground into powder, coloured dye added to the mix, fired in a kiln and shaped on a grinder. They have no uniformity and all come with their own quirks- much like us. Starting their life as disposed glass bottles, these beads perfectly demonstrate how we can turn trash into treasure and create something beautiful and new from the things we have discarded as waste.
In an effort to preserve the traditional beadmaking craft, 10% of the profits from the sale of this product will be donated to the Baobab foundation. A small school near Cape Coast, Ghana, where children with physical/learning disabilities are given a creative education in vocational courses that enable them to support themselves in the future.
