Wood bead neckalce featuring gold rondelles and Earth's Essence color recycled powder glass. These recycled Powder glass beads are made by crushing glass to a fine powder and heating it so that the particles fuse together. The glass is then poured into clay molds, with a cassava leaf stem used to make the hole. They are baked in an oven and the glass fuses and the cassava stem burns up. Jacob Foster jewelry is all hand made and may have natural imperfections and slight variations that enhance its appearance.
