Admire this exceptional strand of ancient Conus shell beads from Mauritania. Traditional beads such as these are sometimes recovered from the ground and given new life. Each graduated strand consists of approximately 70 sets of shell beads with each set consisting of two independent halves. Strand may be worn 'as-is' or used for both jewelry and adornment. The length of the strand is approximately 29" long with individual beads measuring 6-10mm wide and 10-25mm in diameter. These are larger size beads.
