My husband recently returned home from Malawi, Africa with a bag full of beautiful handmade beads. He found these is a small ceramic shop. They were made by a few of the locals. These beads are around 1" (some are a little larger and some a little smaller) and have a 1.9mm hole. They aren't perfect but they are special and one of a kind. There are 12 beads in this listing and they are a dark green/teal color.
