Admire these exceptional cube-like beads crafted by the Tuareg people of Mali in West Africa. The Tuareg are a desert tribe that inhabit a large swathe of North and West Africa including parts of the Sahara. This shape is a traditional design that is particular to Tuareg jewelry. These solid brass beads have a vintage finish and a nice heavy feel to them. Each bead measures approximately 5 x 8mm in diameter with about 100 beads on a string. Hard to find.
