Sir Stripes A Lot: Vintage African Vinyl Record Disc Beads, 11.5mm
Boldly striped and perfectly delicious, 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 11.5mm round x .5mm thick and are a bold striped pattern of blue, yellow, red, pink & green. It is getting harder and harder to find these in good colors like this one.
There are HUNDREDS of beads on this 30"+/- strand.
So perfect with the current TRIBAL fashion trends.
These beads are strung in a loop, which is how they are traditionally sold in Africa.
If you are interested in quantity pricing or wholesale, please convo me. I have lots of different colors and sizes and offer a wholesale price structure.
