Description

Listing is for 5 beads.


These Rustic African beads were hand made in Kiffa , Mauritania by women for hair adornment. They were typically made from 1900 to the 1940's. They are made with powdered glass.

COLOR: Gorgeous hand made colorful beads & are collector beads. Colors are red, yellow, blue, black.

CONDITION: Very good shape, some chipping at hole area of bead. They are rustic beads. Some beads have more faded colors than others which is the nature of the beads.

SHAPE: Squashed round to more roundish.

Size: 10mm to 11mm x 12mm PLEASE NOTE: These are rustic hand made beads. No two are alike. If buying more than 1 , I will do my best to match them up in color & shape, size.

Hole Size: Approx 2mm

PLEASE NOTE: These are handmade beads, hole size varies from bead to bead. Some beads have slightly larger holes. One end of bead can have a smaller hole than the other end.

Thank you for stopping by & please let me know if I can answer any questions.
