Stripes on the Block: Super-Rare Yellow & Black Striped Vintage African Vinyl Record Beads, 7mm, Jewelry Making Supplies Tribal Necklace

These babies are the rarest of the rare when it comes to Vinyl Record Beads. Each bead is striped on this strand; I come across these amazing strands once in a blue moon. 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. Natively, they are called "jigada beads," which is a really fun name to say!
They are vintage, and hail from Mali. Women wear them around their waist, to help them hold their shape. Really cool strand with nice blocks of color.

This strand is made up of almost ALL striped yellow and black discs. There are a few sections of solid black discs, which make a great colorblock effect in the patterning of the strand. The magic runs deep in these. They are beautifully aged, and extremely unusual. The stripes are so fun! The entire strand is 25" long, with 2.75" of twisted cotton at the back, so there are 22.25" of beads. These beads are strung in a loop, they way they are traditionally strung in Africa.

I have lots of other sizes and color combinations of Vinyl Record Beads- please visit my other listings:
