TK Beads is a bead factory located in Accra, Ghana. At this facility, all the products are completely handmade and hand-painted. When producing glass beads, they take some recycled glass bottles (pictured above) and crush them into fine pieces. They then put them into these small bead molds then put them into the clay ovens outside to set. After they are taken out, the glass beads can either be painted like in the pictures with any type of design, or can be left as is. If they are painted, then they are fired for an additional amount of time. This is a long process, and is labor-intensive but the final product is absolutely beautiful. The artists create such detail-oriented pieces that makes them even more special.
