Nickel Silver Stamped Antique African Beads, 12.5x8.5mm, 3 piecesWoman Shops World
Beautifully aged, these large-hole handmade Nickel Silver beads from Africa seem to have a rich story to tell. They are contoured discs with angled sides, and large holes. On top of the surface of each bead are stamped "o" patterns, for added texture. They are beautifully shaped, have incredible contours, and are true works of art. These would be great strung over smaller beads, so that they slide around on a finished bracelet or necklace.
This listing is for 3 beads measuring approximately 12.5x8.5mm each.
The holes on each bead measure approximately 4mm.
Nickel Silver has a lower Silver content than Sterling Silver; it will not tarnish, but will remain looking as it is in these photos.
These beads are old. They do show some wear, and there are some small holes in the metal in some areas, but this is part of their beauty, and attests to their age. African beads have such mystery attached to them; they have been worn for decades, travelled continents, and will be around for hundreds of years into the future. Be a part of the mystery and let these beads grace you with their presence.
