These great saucer-shaped beads are bold and versatile. Each bead measures approximately 9 x 15mm, with a hole size of 1-2mm. Strands measure 24" inches in length. Look carefully to see the high quality of the workmanship, smooth finish, and rustic character. The hollow design of these beads makes them lighter than they look, without compromising quality. Shade of brass may vary slightly from strand to strand. Try some today and see for yourself!
My sister bought $900 necklace in a boutique. I knew I could duplicate for a lot less. I bought these beads hoping they were identical and they were. I made the same necklace for $125 and a few hours of my time. Very much worth the money!

This strand is a little darker than other Ethiopian silver beads have been in the past, but I'm hoping a little polishing will bring back the silver tone. I love these beads as they are versatile: accent a focal, make a whole strand of them, dot a chunky necklace with them, OR use them as THE focal. You can see the workmanship in each bead. Thank you, Bead Chest for carrying such a huge variety of interesting beads!
