These fabulous beads are made in Africa from Vulcanite, a material that was used to make vinyl records. They are known as Vinyl Record Beads, since they are made from the same material. Natively, they are called "jigida beads," which is a really fun name to say!
These beads hail from Mali, where women wear them around their waist, to help them hold their shape. Beads are 4x.5mm thick, in a perfectly bold color combo, including, white (which is harder to find!), blue, red, yellow, and green. Great POPS of color!
There are HUNDREDS of beads on this 37"+/- strand. These are strung in a loop the way they are traditionally sold in Africa. Many of this type of bead are vintage, but these are new beads.
So perfect with the current TRIBAL fashion trends.
These are strung into a loop, which is how they are traditionally sold in Africa.
