Brass Wraps - african killerbeads

Recycled Glass


Beads made from recycled glass are very popular in my bead shop. They are made by pulverizing discarded glass (beer bottles, cold creme or cosmetic jars). The resulting crushed glass mixture is called "fritt". 

The fritt is then used to fill various size molds and baked in an oven until the fritt coalesces into glass.  

Each bead will be unique since the mold has to be broken to remove the bead.
