Eco-friendly beads made from recycled glass

These beads are perfect for any eco-friendly project as they are all made from receycled glass.
These beads used to be a mineral water bottle, but then the bottle was broken into shards, the shards cut up into small stripes and these were then made into beads.
A real family project: my daughter drank the sparkling water, my husband cut up the glass and I made the beads ;-)

Hi Lisa!
It is really not difficult, but a lot of work to cut up the glass.
Now when I go shopping I am always on the lookout for glass bottles in great colours ;-)
