recycled glass beads

All these necklaces are made with recycled glass beads in hues of green, azure and topaz. Beads are the size of a blueberry and handmade by artisans in Kenya from recycled bottles. 



I made this one with brass wire and wooden beads mixed with the azure glass beads. Eco-friendly in a way, since glass can be processed indefinitely - glass is the most recyclable man made material.  



These two are from the maasai market in Nairobi. A combination of glass beads, Abija beads and brass wire.
