"...beads were made in the Czech Republic in the 1950's and exported into Africa, probably Mali. They are called "Wedding Beads" because on her wedding day, a bride would be given a necklace of these beads, collected by the women near and dear to her. These beads have been traded through multiple venues, hence the wear and tear on them, which adds to their beauty. Some beads have scratches on their surface, pits in the glass, or some of the surface pattern is worn off. This is what makes them unique, and adds to the intrigue and beauty."

*Please examine the pictures and ask any questions before you buy. Comes from a smoke free home, but I do have a cat.
