Check these scrumptious finds from Africa out!!!! This first set of beads was made locally in Capetown out of batik fabric and handmade “sand cast” glass beads. As much as I hate to part with them, they will be incorporated with a fused glass pendant created to match perfectly. I have this necklace in my head and the first layer of glass done in the kiln!!!!
These wooden beads I bargained for with the fella pictured below them! Each is inlaid in bone and hand finished and polished. I bought multiple strands of them and can’t wait to create a pendant to match!!!
