6 x 16mm bead, 1mm stringing hole
Mali Wedding beads are hand-made, and are presented to brides on their wedding days. They were made in what was once known as Czechoslovakia, for trade in Africa. They are worn throughout West Africa, specifically in Mali. These beads are multicolored and come the shape of a bulb. While each strand is unique, and may vary from the strand pictured, yet they have similarities. The glass beads are strung in a way that allows them to swivel around the cord. Some strands may not have white string wrapped at the top. These beads are greatly treasured and worn by Fulani women.
This strand measures approximately 26". The strand pictured is a sample showing approximate color scheme. The strand shipped will be similar but vary slightly from picture. Current stock is long strands!
I loved these beads, unfortunately, the hole size is too small for my designs; I would compromise the bead if I were to attempt reaming a larger hole. But... absolutely gorgeous beads! Wish they would have worked for me.
