Happy and bright, these fabulous beads are striped glass beads from Java Indonesia. Handcrafted, these beauties have the prettiest striped pattern on them. The bases are made of a turquoise color, with an alternating red/green/yellow striped pattern on the surface. Each of these colors is flanked by two white stripes.
They have a matte finish on them that really makes the colors pop. Each bead has a unique pattern on it, and the sizes of the beads vary, as you can see in the photos.
You get approximately 24" of beads which amounts to approx. 140 pieces.
Beads measure approximately 4.5x4mm, but size does vary.
The holes measure approximately .5mm (large enough for .5mm elastic).
They are temporarily strung on twisted cotton, which adds approximately another 2". The total strand length is approximately 26", and they are strung in a completed loop, the way they are traditionally sold in Indonesia.
They could be worn as-is, or break them apart and make some tribal magic of your own.
