Excavated in the 1970’s, these antique beads from Mali are actually 500-600 years old! We used to carry them when we had The Bead Shop in Palo Alto. They have been old friends in many of our designs. With the renewed interest in African beads and tribal art, we were so happy to “re-find” them. Look how we used them in Across Cultures.
Each strand is 28-30 inches in length and strung on cotton thread. No two strands are alike.
