Vintage African Glass Snake Beads Purple & Royal Blue, 9x4mmWoman Shops World
How cool are these beads?! Called Glass Snake Vertebrae because of the way they interlock like a snake's backbone. Zig-zag in shape, these beads are like little puzzle pieces. Very popular this season with all of the tribal-chic and african fashion trends!
The strand is strung in a loop, they way they are traditionally strung, approximately 28" long (24" of beads with 4" of white string at the top).
Approximately 150 beads per strand.
Beads measure approximately 9x4mm, with about a 2mm, hole.
You will receive a strand that is the same color palette as these. The pattern will vary from strand to strand, as you can see in the photos, but the colors will be the same.
These beads are old; they do show some dirt and minor chips on some of the edges, 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.
