These antique beauties are an incredible combination of natural shades. They remind me of treasures that would wash up on the shore. Beautifully aged and old, these strands of Djenne beads come from Djenne in Mali, Africa.
These beads are from Italy, and are also known as Roman Glass Beads. The have beautiful sandy and creamy white colors. They have obviously been buried, worn, and travelled far.
This listing is for 1 strand (one of the strands pictured). Beads measure approximately 4x3mm, and about a .5-1mm, hole.
The strand is strung in a loop, they way they are traditionally strung, approximately 25" long.
Approximately 200 beads per strand.
Wear these beads as is, or break them apart to make some tribal juju of your own.
These beads are old. They do show some dirt and minor chips on some of the edges, but this is part of their beauty, and attests to their age. African beads have such mystery attached to them; they have been worn for decades, travelled continents, and will be around for hundreds of years into the future. Be a part of the mystery and let these beads grace you with their presence.
