Take a look at these oval-shaped Ghana Brass Trade Beads from Africa. Each bead is made individually through the "Lost Wax process" technique. This strand is about 25", with beads measuring approximately 25 x 11mm in diameter. Each strand may have 1-2 beads that are less than perfect and may vary slightly from strand pictured. Beads appear slightly less narrow in photo than the beads you will receive.
