Item details

Vintage from before 2000


tribal silver


Bead size: 3 Inches; Bead hole size: 5 Millimeters

Here's a very OLD bead with tons of character. I used to make bead drapes with these and now they are super hard to find. Has a bit of worn off goldwash showing more silver underneath, and a nice crusty verdigris patina.

Approx 3" by .75" wide with a 5 mm hole at both ends.

Tribal silver is base metal, which is a combination of silver, brass, copper, and nickel. People with nickel allergies (common!) should take note. This is an old piece, handmade by tribal artisans, so expect some tarnish and imperfections. They are considered part of the beauty and should NOT be considered a flaw.

Please check for photos for dimensions, boxes equal inches.
