These are the real deal! These African beads are made from the actual vertebrae of a snake. They interlock and move just like a snake would. Most strands are from a continuous snake, but some have sections from more than one snake. These have been stained a beautiful brown color.
Approx. Bead Size: 10x9mm (
may be variation as these are natural vertebrae)
Hole Size: 1-2mm
Number of beads: 70+
Strand Length: 31" (26" beads, 5" twisted twine)
Color: Medium-Dark Brown
These beads are strung in a loop, the way they are traditionally strung in Africa. They make great masculine jewelry, or a really cool wall hanging. Why not break them apart and create your own tribal magic?
