10mm Black Vintage African Vinyl Record Beads, Boho Tribal NecklaceWoman Shops World
Nothing says classic like black. These fabulous vintage 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 the strung beads hold their shape.
This is a vintage strand that is mostly black with an occasional red bead.
