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 8x.5mm thick. This is an awesome strand for wearing as-is, and would be so great stacked with a few other strands for the layered look! Really stripey because of the way the colors are mixed. Lots of bright red (not the darker red that is so common), bright green, a few yellow, blue, and even a few pinks. 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:
