Take a look at this beautiful strand of African vinyl beads. Beads such as these are found in Ghana and Nigeria where they are sometimes worn as waist beads. Older versions of vinyl beads were said to be made from recycled phonograph records. This strand measures approximately 36" with individual beads measuring approximately 1 x 8mm. These beads are light, fun to wear and also versatile for jewelry designs. Each strand is sold individually.
