African Krobo powder glass beads are made in vertical molds fashioned out of a special, locally dug clay. The mold is filled with finely ground glass that can be built up in layers in order to form sequences and patterns of different shapes and colours. Cassava leaf stems are used, these will burn away during firing and leave the bead stringing hole. Firing takes place in clay kilns until the glass fuses.
