These five chunky African "amber" resin beads are each 3 centimeters in width and are approximately 1.8 centimeters thick. There is a center hole in each which is approximately 2mm wide. You can string these beads on thin wire, silk thread or beading string. I have had these beautiful beads in my personal collection of jewelry-making materials for more than 15 years. They have a wonderful dark blood-orange color (and they look especially nice when paired with turquoise).

Vintage “African amber” was one of the first uses of plastic, employed as an easy way to con people into trading for more valuable stuff. They now command a princely sum. Each African bead carries its own story; a rich history and story behind it. Many will have had numerous owners, and seen multiple continents by the time they arrive to you. African beads and jewelry have played an enormous role in the culture, fashion, economy, and artistic expression of the African people. Today, they are cherished by collectors, jewelry makers, and everyday people who just love wearing African beads.
