These Tuareg Brass beads are very individual, because they are hand made.. I have tried to match up pairs but if you see a difference, that's why... these beads are so magical.. You can tell that they are brass by the weight.. not heavy enough to cause trouble but satisfactorily "Ethnic" and, rare. They were made between the 1900s and 1950s. The beads are about 27 mm long, the earrings, with their added Copper bi cones hang 44 mm below their Sterling Silver French hooks.. I only use Sterling Silver.. head pins and all.
