How Our Sea Glass Beads Are Made
These beautiful grey color recycled beads are made using an old method that has been used for centuries in Africa. The glass comes from a variety of recycled sources including old beverage and medicine bottles. The process for making the beads consists of a number of steps whereby powdered glass is poured into molds of clay and baked in a specialized oven. These beads are produced in large part by the Krobo tribe in Ghana, Africa. These beads have bubbles, cracks or minor divots as they are meant to mimic natural sea glass. Our beads are sourced directly using fair trade practices to assist developing communities throughout Africa.
WE GIVE BACK.
10% of the proceeds from the sale of our glass beads will be donated to Her Future Coalition, a grassroots nonprofit that provide shelter, education, and high-wage employment to survivors of human trafficking and extreme abuse so that they may remain forever free. Her Future Coalition (formerly operating as Made by Survivors) has been providing shelter, education and high-quality employment to survivors of human trafficking and extreme abuse for over a decade. They have helped over 2000 survivors and their families become free and independent, in India, Nepal, Cambodia, and Thailand.
