    Beads in hand are more vibrant and deeper in color than photography can capture. Expect them to be a dark and vibrant turquoise green color. We try very hard to maintain color consistency in photos but aquas and teals of any shade are hard to reproduce in photographs.

    Sand Cast beads traditionally are created by the Krobo tribe in Ghana circa late 1800s/early 1900s. They are sand casted beads, and created by grinding recycled glass bottles into a fine powder, into a clay mold, and heated until the powdered glass fuse together without completely melting. Every bead has a rustic sandy textured, and is unique and slightly irregular. This process of making these glass beads is an ancient method dating back to over 1000 years ago and it is still used today.

    I've sold beads for over 20 years. As with all items I sell - I'm all about quality!

    That sucks!‼︎ The color of the photo is different from the actual item. "My images are accurate and do not allow for color differences caused by differences in computer screens," I was told by the seller. I'll leave a comparison photo here so you know my review is accurate. I hope this will be helpful to those considering purchasing. The seller claims, "I have a good reputation, so I'm right. You will be responsible for the round-trip shipping costs." The one-way shipping fee and product price are the same amount. Psychologically, people don't want to post bad reviews as much as possible.Some sellers also request that bad posts be corrected. Reviews are not perfect.I also have a history of purchasing beads of various colors from multiple sellers. It's impossible for the colors to be so different. Etsy knows I'm not lying.Feb.2024
