Handmade decoupaged and painted genuine oyster shells.

Features the following unique materials:

Yellow recycled glass beads, handmade by artisans in the West African country of Ghana. Each bead is individually handcrafted through a traditional process passed down from generation to generation. The steps involve crushing glass into tiny pieces, placing it in a mold, and then heating the crushed glass at high temperatures in a clay oven. Different types of glass are used including old cola bottles, broken tiles and windows, and other types of repurposed glass.

Nepali bone beads. Each of these bone beads was handcarved out of reclaimed cow bone in the mountainous regions of Nepal.
