these beautiful recycled glass beads in our phone charm strap are made by the Krobo People of Ghana, Africa. the naturally rough texture is very calming to the touch. smoothing your fingers over them creates a soothing tactile and audible sensation.
the powder glass beads are made by crushing used glass to a fine powder and heating it so that the particles fuse together. the glass is poured into clay molds with a cassava leaf stem used to make the hole. they are then baked in an oven, the glass fuses, and the cassava stem burns up—a technique that has been used in Ghana for centuries.
the charm cord is made of hemp. the finished charm strap is fabulous and 100% eco friendly, hand made just for you by the team at *her eco.
