Glass bead stretch bracelet. 

These unique beads are made by the Krobo People of Ghana, Africa. These beads are made by crushing glass to a fine powder and heating so that the particles fuse together. The glass is then poured into clay molds with a cassava leaf stem used to make the hole. They are baked in an oven and the glass fuses and the cassava leaf stem burns up. This technique has been used in Africa for centuries.
