29 inches (15 inches beads) Strand Length
Take a second to appreciate the true artisan craftsmanship of these Afghani Glass Beads likely made from old bangles. This is a more unusual cut of the glass that is difficult to find. Afghani Bangle Beads are said to have considerable age are made by stringing together pieces of old glass bracelets that are sometimes referred to as Roman Glass. Each strand has its own unique story to tell and could've been made with multiple different bangles. Strand length is about 29" in length with 15" of beads. Some strands may include a unique glass fragment pendant (not shown in photo). Individual beads measure approximately 2-3mm wide and 4-6mm diameter with a drilled hole size just under 1mm. While the beads have a predominantly black and dark blue tone, multiple colors may be included on each unique strand. Single pictured strand is intended to be representative and you will receive something comparable but not necessarily the exact same strand. Photo with multiple strands is intended to illustrate variation however each strand is sold separately. May be worn as a special necklace or repurposed in your unique creations. Unusual find! Note that while the material is said to be of old, possibly ancient origin, the precise age of the glass has not been independently verified.

Blue Roman Glass Bangle Beads

We all know, a picture is worth a thousand words... These beads are absolutely wonderful and so full of good energy. There are no two alike, they are not perfect in any way and yet they speak volumes when used in earrings which make a statement!

Love

These beads are very unique. They have a great color variation, and a have a rough white finish, almost as if you just picked them up on the beach. I received 20 beads. Separating each bead are 3 small rough beads that are also cute! You’ll love them.
