These fabulous beads are 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.
These beads hail from Mali, where women wear them around their waist, to help them hold their shape. Natively, they are called "jigida beads," which is a really fun name to say!
Many of this style of bead are vintage, but these are newer strands.
Bead Size: 6x.5mm
Approx. Strand Length: 32"
Color: Buttercup Yellow
So perfect with the current TRIBAL and NEON fashion trends.
These are strung into a loop, which is how they are traditionally sold in Africa.
If you are interested in quantity pricing or wholesale, please convo me. I have lots of different colors and sizes!
A portion of all WSW sales will be donated to The Compassion Collective, which works to feed, clothe, shelter, and save our refugee and homeless sisters, brothers, and children in the US and worldwide.
