This color in these beads stopped me in my tracks. In many years of dealing with these beads, I've never seen this baby blue. How cool are these beads?! Called Glass Snake Vertebrae because of the way they interlock like a snake's backbone. Zig-zag in shape, these beads are like little puzzle pieces. Very popular this season with all of the tribal and african fashion trends!
This listing is for 1 strand, in a beautiful baby blue that is super-rare, and a white that is also hard to come by! The strand is strung in a loop, they way they are traditionally strung in Africa, approximately 30" long (28.5" of beads with 1.5" of twisted twine at the top).
Beads measure approximately 6x4mm, with about a 2mm, hole.
Approximately 200 beads per strand.
You will receive the exact strand of beads that you see here.
These beads are old; they do show some dirt and minor chips on some of the edges, but this is part of their beauty, and attests to their age. African beads have such mystery attached to them; they have been worn for decades, travelled continents, and will be around for hundreds of years into the future. Be a part of the mystery and let these beads grace you with their presence.
