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 with all of the tribal and african fashion trends!
This listing is for 1 strand, in a hard to come by white that is quite hard to find! Beads measure approximately 10x4mm, with about a 2mm, hole. The strand is strung in a loop, they way they are traditionally strung in Africa, approximately 28" long (23" of beads with 5" of twisted twine at the top). Approximately 140 beads per strand.
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.
