From Bottles to Beauties
These exquisite, richly colored African beads, designed by Jules Vertrees and Jacquie Lewis, are made in clay molds using melted finely-powdered glass from recycled bottles and jars. Humble materials transformed by ingenuity and craftsmanship, to us, they’re real gems: beautiful things created from materials that would otherwise go to waste. Traditionally they have been used as talismans for healing or to denote status, as well as for adornment. Choose blue chevron barrels, multicolor discs, or multicolor cylinders. Handmade in Thailand.
