Melon Orange: African Vinyl Record Beads, 4x.5mm

Add to Wishlist

These fabulous beads hail from Mali, Africa. They are commonly known as "vinyl record beads," though they are made from vulcanite, which is a compressed rubber product that was commonly used in the Victorian period to make jewelry. Women in Mali wear these beads as belly bracelets.

The beads in this listing are a great orange color, perfect for Autumn designs, and they are a great small size: 4x1mm thick. These are strung into a loop, which is how they are traditionally sold in Africa.


There are HUNDREDS, if not thousands of beads on this 33"+/- strand.
