In a white that promises to get your heart racing, this extra-large padre bead caught Janice’s attention peeking out from a box in the back of Muhammed Drammeh’s bead truck. Every few months, Muhammed comes through and stops by our office with all kinds of goodies he brings in from West Africa. This chumbo padre is nice for a chunkier Tahoe or stack them in Tribal Ladder with 2mm leather for the guy in your life. Hole sizes vary a lot. Some will fit on 1mm leather, but many others will do better on Waxed Linen, #3 Tuff Cord or C-Lon.
They are handmade and completely irregular. Please embrace the variations because there are going to be plenty! Strung in Africa on rafia. Each strand measures about 23-24 inches in length. Approximately 100 beads per strand.
