These fabulous vintage beads hail from Mali, Africa. They are commonly known as "vinyl record beads," though they are made from vulcanite, which is a compressed rubber product that was commonly used in the Victorian period to make jewelry. Women in Mali wear these beads as belly bracelets.

The beads in this listing are quite unusual- they are actually sequins. I have never seen Vinyl Record beads like this. They have a sparkly coating on one side, and they are beautifully shiny if you look at the edges. The color is a nice creamy white; not bright, but beautifully natural. There are HUNDREDS of beads on this 31"+/- strand. Some of them have hints of pink on the edges, but most are completely white.

I have several other sizes and color combinations, including other color mixes with pink- please visit my other listings:

This listing is for 1 strand; I only have 3 of these total in stock.
