Traditional glass beads of Ghana are often referred to as Krobo beads, the Krobo mountains being the main area of production. These beads are made from recycled glass. Bottles and other glass items are first washed and sorted by colors. They are then broken into small fragments for making translucent beads, or pounded with a metal mortar and pestle, and sieved to get a very fine powder for making powder glass beads. Beads have been part of the communities of the world for as long as 40,000 years ago. The Krobo tribe of Ghana in Africa is credited for making of the African Recycled glass beads. These glass beads are then used for trade and for personal usage by this community. There is a special technique that is used to make this glass beads. They are created by compressing glass till it resembles dry grain and then these grain are heated together in high heat temperatures until the pieces form together. The next step is rushing the recycled cast into a porcelain cast. They use Coco Cola bottles , Beer and Wine Bottles, Vanity and Cold Cream Jars. All these glass bottles provide an abundance of rich diverse colors in producing, earthy amber's, green and blue and even darker colored glass beads.
