Item details

I have multiple strands of these very earthy handmade stoneware beads, made by my friend Bob, who makes the most wonderful ceramic beads. He made these in or around 1972-1973 and kept them stored away until his recent retirement. This listing is for one 30" strand of these beads, approximately 70 beads. With black onyx, lava beads, or wood, these make up into very nice men's bracelets and necklaces, especially the "shambala" type and wrap bracelets. The beads are approximately 10mm x 6mm. Full strands are a better buy than my small lots, so if you make a lot of jewelry, consider one of these 30" strands. Lots of bang for the buck; and once they're gone, not even Marty McFly and the professor could return to the past to make more!!!
