This strand of fairly uniform antique brass/bronze spacer beads from the Orissa Tribe in India they are not identical like many out there. They have all been hand wrought and struck giving each their own character . The strand is 8" in length and consists of fairly consistent sized spacer beads between 3-4mm with a 1mm hole for stringing although the hold is a angular shape since these are older the holes were struck and not drilled or molded. These spacer beads are of course handmade. I have owned this strand for 35+ years and they are definitely some of the oldest Orissa brass beads of this type that I have seen. these are not the newer copies I see a lot of they do shine up with a beautiful almost gold like appearance.
