Two wonderful tribally used spiral beads from Ethiopia, probably Oromo people.
The bronze / brass and copper coloured metal beads are painstakingly made by hand and come along with a great patina from many years of wear. Collector's items! But of course you can also use them in your own tribally inspired jewelery creations.
Very smooth and tactile.
Length: about 13.5 and 11.5 cm (ca. 5.3" and 4.5") Width: roughly 12 mm (0.47") 87 grams (together)
The item(s) are always packed with great care to ensure they will arrive safely. I do my best to use recycled paper/bubble foil etc. as well as recycled envelopes and boxes to help safe our environment.
You will receive a shipping confirmation and a tracking number (unless a shipping option without tracking has been chosen by you, e.g. in case of items below € 24) as soon as your item is on its way to you.
Shipping is done with airmail shipping from Germany. Normally your delivery should reach you within 2-3 weeks. Packages sent to countries outside the European Union are occasionally delayed by random customs controls. This is out of my control and I request that you factor this eventuality into the delivery time. Please be aware that you are responsible for all customs fees, duty and import charges.
For items above €24, I always ship with registered mail as it can be tracked. Please note that this does not cover an insurance which would allow me to refund the cost of your item.
For more expensive items from € 100 to €500 shipping costs always include a shipping insurance. Please note that the process of claiming a refund in case of a lost item may take up to 3 months as I will need to submit a search and wait for the outcome of the report done by the postal services involved. Luckily, losses are very rare.
If you want insured shipping with an item for which I do not offer a shipping insurance, please contact me before (or even after) the purchase. It costs only few euros/dollars to add an insurance.
Please note that I cannot be responsible for lost/stolen/damaged items that were not insured, or for delays that are due to errors in the post, labor disputes or other occurrences that are beyond my power to influence. I keep proof of shipping for all orders.
Payment is accepted through Paypal and within the EU only through free bank transfer.
My prices are net prices - VAT is not applicable since I am a private seller who under German law is not required to have a VAT number.
