Beach Treasure: Djenne Beads from Mali / Roman Glass Beads /Sand-Colored, Antique Strand, 4x3mm /Nautical Beads, Supplies for Jewelry Making

These antique beauties are an incredible combination of natural shades. They remind me of treasures that would wash up on the shore. Beautifully aged and old, these strands of Djenne beads come from Djenne in Mali, Africa. These beads are from Italy, and are also known as Roman Glass Beads. The have beautiful sandy and creamy white colors. They have obviously been buried, worn, and travelled far.

This listing is for 1 strand (one of the strands pictured). Beads measure approximately 4x3mm, and about a .5-1mm, hole. The strand is strung in a loop, they way they are traditionally strung, approximately 25" long. Approximately 200 beads per strand.

Wear these beads as is, or break them apart to make some tribal juju of your own.

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.

FAQs

Yes! Wholesale options are available, as I gather and curate all of these goods directly from their source. Please message me with any wholesale inquiries. I offer a sliding wholesale discount on items bought in BULK. As the product margins vary widely, the easiest thing is for you to send me a screen shot of your shopping cart. That way I can see exactly what items you are interested in, and let you know what discount I can offer you. Please message me with any wholesale inquiries. Please note: Vinyl Record beads have their own discount scale.

Yes! All WomanShopsWorld orders ship wrapped in festive tissue, so your order will arrive ready to gift. If you would like us to leave out the receipt, say so with a note to seller at checkout!

Hmmmm... with first class international shipping, unfortunately the postal service often will not provide any updates at least until the package reaches its destination country. Sometimes it will not update until it has cleared customs. Once we drop your goodies off at the post office, we put our trust into those fine people that they will get them to you as quickly as possible. With that said, first class shipping does not provide an estimate of how long it will take to arrive internationally. In our experience it can take anywhere from 11-30 days, sometimes a little longer. Of course we always cross our fingers in our customer's favor!

Hmmm... to find out, please click on the tracking number provided in your purchase history. Often the USPS website updates much faster than Etsy's tracing service. There have been several instances, where Etsy is showing a package as being in "pre-transit" when it is showing as having arrived in its destination city when I go to USPS website!

Unfortunately, no. All of our business is done online. We are set up in our stockrooms and in our daily schedules to ship, ship ship! As much as we'd love the company, this translates to our warehouse being a beautiful mess that is just not fit for shopping in person. We've got our goodies listed online and we ship within 1-3 business days. I'd say with the added thrill of receiving a package in the mailbox, it's more fun than shopping in person :-)

Maybe. I accept returns on any un-altered items if you contact me within 3 days of receiving your order. Please contact me BEFORE you return the goods so that I am aware of what items you would like to return. Please note: Any return requests made after 3 days of receipt of goods will incur a 10% restocking fee and tassel/pompom returns will incur a 20% restocking fee. Sorry guys, but it takes a lot of time to pull them and even more time to put the back! I do not accept returns on ribbons, trims, or fabrics that are purchased by the yard. Once they are cut for you, they are yours. I think that's pretty fair, don't you?!

Absolutely! You will be charged shipping fees according to the exact weight of the items in your shopping cart. There are no hidden fees; we charge you exactly what USPS charges us.
