These beads are beautifully mesmerizing and delightful. So delicious, so striking, so bold, these beads are a beautiful blue and white color combo, with a red layer too. These beads are made of 7 layers of glass cane that were molded and melted together. Then the cane is stretched out, and beads are cut and then ground down to shape. The grinding down of the layers is what exposes the incredible Chevron pattern that these beads are so famous for.
Beads measure approximately 18x20mm (3/4"x3/4"), with a 4mm hole. This listing is for 1 of these beautiful beads.
These beads are old, though I am not sure how old. 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.
