A fun and colorful strand of old African Christmas beads. Can be worn as a necklace or bracelet, as you can see in one of the pictures. The strand measures approximately 39 inches.

You will get the exact same strand shown in the pictures.

These strands are a wonderful mixture of old glass trade beads. The beads date back to the early to mid 1900's, possibly earlier. Some of these beads have traveled at least three continents, and have graced numerous owners. Small chips, corrosion, and pitting are a normal part of their patina attesting to their age and extensive use. They are still strung on their original cotton strings.

It's even fun to use two or three of these strands together. If interested in purchasing more than one, please convo me, and I will arrange for a custom listing.
