Pony Express Beads- Silver
Silver Plated Brass 5x5mm Beads with 2mm Hole
For a brief period (1860-1861), the Pony Express was the only way to get mail from the East Coast to California. Moving at breakneck speeds, the horse and rider rode their way into history. This bead has also found its place in time. Called a Pony Bead because its hole allowed it to be braided into a pony's hair, bohemian glass versions were used extensively in Native American Beadwork. Our Greek Leather in 1.0 will fit twice through the hole and it is a wonderful bead to use in Color Study. Made in India. Please note: This newer bead is slightly smaller in bead size than previously sold.
Sold in packages of 20 beads.
