Blue on Green: Vintage African Vinyl Record Disc Beads, 12mm
Sold Out$ 36.00
If you like blue green, you will looooove these fabulous beads, 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 12x.5mm, a beautiful bold size. It is getting harder and harder to find these VINTAGE strands in good colors like this one. This strand has an awesome two-tone blue and dark green color. It has a great color block pattern. There are HUNDREDS of beads on this 29"+/- 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.
