These vintage blue glass beads were originally produced in Czechoslovakia and sent to West Africa in the mid-20th century. Crafted in an oval shape, similar to the grain of rice, they are often referred to as "rice beads." Due to their vintage nature, they are becoming increasingly difficult to find. Each bead measures approximately 6 x 4-5mm with a hole size of 1mm. Strands measure approximately 27". Limited supply available. Get yours today!
