Green Gears: Yellow Glass Pinion Vintage African Beads, 5.5x2mm

Add to Wishlist

How cool are these beads?! These are a variation on beads traditionally called Glass Snake Vertebrae because of the way they interlock like a snake's backbone. These are an unusual pinion shape, and they "stack" together to make the coolest pattern! Very popular this season with all of the tribal and african fashion trends!

Beads measure approximately 5.5x2mm, with about a 1mm, hole.

This listing is for 1 strand in a lovely green color. The strand is strung in a loop, they way they are traditionally strung, approximately 24" long (approx. 20" of beads with 4" of twisted twine at the top).

Approximately 300 beads per strand.

These beads are strung in a loop, they way they are traditionally strung.
These beads are old; they date back as early as the early 1900's and originated from Europe. 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.
