Beauty from a Bottle Metriz Jewelry uses Krobo beads. Krobo beads are traditional glass beads from Ghana, produced on the Krobo mountains by the Krobo people. These beautiful African beads are handmade, made from recycled glass and bottles, they are still composed in open-sided thatch-roofed huts, using traditional labor intensive methods. The bottles and other glass pieces are first washed and classified by colors. They are then disintegrated into small particles or battered with a metal mortar and pestle, and seived to obtain a fine powder for making glass beads. Ceramic dyes provides the glass powder the different colors required. Bead making is a craft that has been passed down through the generations among the Krobo people.
