The Ashanti glass beads are created using a unique African technique perfected over the past 1000 years. The process involves collecting discarded glass bottles and other glass materials, which are then cleaned, crushed into a fine powder, and used to create the vibrant and unique beads through traditional methods. Various colors of pulverized glass are poured into a clay mold, with a cassava stem inserted to form the bead's hole. The mold is then heated in a furnace until the glass particles fuse together without melting, and the cassava stem burns away. This intricate process has been a cherished tradition among Ghanaians since the 1600s that's not only a sustainable practice but also supports environmental conservation efforts.

CARE:

Avoid Water Exposure: Keep your necklace dry. Avoid wearing it while swimming, showering, or during heavy exercise to prevent damage to the glass beads and other materials.  Cleaning: Gently wipe the beads with a soft, damp cloth. Avoid using harsh chemicals or cleaners that could damage the glass, bone, or brass components.  Storage: Store your necklace in a cool, dry place, ideally in a soft pouch or jewelry box. This helps prevent scratches and tangling.  Handling: Handle with care. The glass beads, although durable, can chip or break if dropped or subjected to heavy impact.  Avoid Prolonged Sun Exposure: Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause the colors of the beads to fade. Store your necklace away from direct sunlight to maintain its vibrant colors.
