Named after the famous American expedition led by Captain Meriwether Lewis and his close friend Second Lieutenant William Clark, these beads are inspired by the originals. As Lewis and Clark traversed the land acquired through the Louisiana Purchase, it is said they carried with them 33 pounds of glass beads used for bartering and presents. Many were traded with natives they met along the way. While the original "Lewis & Clark" beads are valued at hundreds of dollars per strand or more, these modern replicas offer great quality at the fraction of the price! Each bead measures approximately 23-27 x 11-12mm with a hole size of approximately 2mm. You will receive a full strand measuring approximately 22". Get yours today.
