Take a look at this beautiful strand of old glass crystal beads. Commonly known as Abussinia beads, the origin of these beads is not precisely known but is likely the Kingdom of Ethiopia which was formerly known as Abyssinia for almost one thousand years. The unique character of these unusual beads is evident in every strand and may include a combination of round, square, and faceted beads. Some beads may have small chips or show other signs of age. Each strand is unique and may vary slightly from strand pictured.
