These trade beads were purchased in the mid 1990's from African traders who visited my store, The Bead Garden. The beads shown here are exactly what you will receive. Approx. 6" of beads on a temporary strand of 1mm cord.
These beautiful drawn glass beads are in excellent condition and will make a great addition to your collection or in your jewelry designs. The have a nice size hole that will accomodate a variety of stringing options.
This strand contains 13 small black barrel beads with designs and one larger black bead with yellow and red stripes.
Shipping is for one strand, additional items can be added to your order for an additional .25 per item. Please message me if you have any questions about this or any other item in the shop.
