Natural wood bead necklace featuring various accent beads (including blue recycled powder glass beads) and a Double layer Natural horse hair 4 inche tassel. The fun African recycled 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.Jacob Foster jewelry is all hand made and may have natural imperfections and slight variations that enhance its appearance.
