Pink Bubblegum: African Vinyl Record Beads, 14mmWoman Shops World
These fabulous beads hail from Mali, Africa. They are commonly known as "vinyl record beads," though they are made from vulcanite, which is a compressed rubber product that was commonly used in the Victorian period to make jewelry. Women in Mali wear these beads as belly bracelets.
The beads in this listing are an incredibly vibrant color of PINK, and they are a great large size: 14x1mm thick. These are strung into a loop, which is how they are traditionally sold in Africa.
There are HUNDREDS, if not thousands of beads on this 36"+/- strand.
**As many of my products come from Nepal, a portion of my proceeds will be donated to the Unicef and Americares Nepali relief efforts. **
