These fabulous beads are made in Africa from Vulcanite, a material that was used to make vinyl records. They are known as Vinyl Record Beads, since they are made from the same material. Natively, they are called "jigida beads," which is a really fun name to say!

They are vintage, and hail from Mali. Women wear them around their waist, to help them hold their shape. Beads are 15x.5mm thick. It is getting harder to find the fun strands like this one with so much pink! This strand has a really nice stripey feel to it. It's pink, yellow, red, and black, but the way they are stacked together gives it a great feel. There are HUNDREDS of beads on this 31"+/- strand.

So perfect with the current TRIBAL and NEON fashion trends.
Temporarily strung on thread, you could wear these beads as-is. Or why not cut them apart and make some recycled vinyl magic of your own?

I have lots of other sizes and color combinations- please visit my other listings:
