Wood beaded necklace featuring earth essence recycled sea glass beads, gold cage beads and a naturally shed deer antler burr. These fun African beads are made using crushed glass cola bottles that have been used and discarded. The crushed glass is then heated, and poured into clay molds. A cassava leaf stem is placed in each mold to make the hole. The beads are baked in an oven allowing the glass to fully fuse, and the cassava stem to burn away. This technique has been used in Africa for centuries and are environmentally friendly. Jacob Foster jewelry is all hand made and may have natural imperfections and slight variations that enhance its appearance.
