Clay bead production within Africa, is a craft several thousand years old. Archaeological digs within Mali, have realized great collections of these beads which may be up to 500 years old! As a rule, Mali Clay Beads are produced through a gradual baking process in the heat of the sun - although it is not clear if they are made using a mold, or cane production process.
