These African trade beads were handmade using traditional tribal methods. The colors and sizes of the beads will vary within each strand. These are primitively made beads so expect imperfections in the shape, colors and textures. The pictures are taken from different angles so that you can see all of the beads on the strands. ****
* Material Type - reclaimed and recycled glass beads strung on a raffia string; handmade using centuries old tribal glass making process. * Origin - Krobo Tribe in Ghana, West Africa * Condition - very good vintage condition; due to the age of these beads (est. mid 20th century) and the nature of how they are made you will see some pitting in the surface and possibly some small chips on the ends; these imperfections create the aged patina and add to the character of the beads. * Shape - tubular/barrel; whole size is approximately 2-3mm
