These icy cool powder glass beads are a classics amongst classics. They are a thirst quenching ice aqua. The title "powder glass" is due to the process by which they are made. They start as
recycled glass which is pulverized into a fine powder. This powder is
sifted into little molds then put into an earthen kiln to fuse the
powder into spheres. Each is carefully removed and a hole is pierced
with a pick by hand. This process gives them their distinctive matte finish and
variations in size and shape. They add a sophisticated, ethnic, chunky
quality to your beadwork. They have holes large enough to permit
thicker cord and hemp. These are 24mm in diameter, but there is some variation in size and shape as each is made by hand. They are $1 per bead.
