Prized for their unequaled beauty and striking color, Moroccan Amber Resin Beads have been prized for centuries among the Berber tribes of the mountainous regions of North of Africa. In traditional families, such beads conveyed both status and wealth and have been passed down from one generation to the next. Due to their unique character, these artisanal amber resin beads may be worn as-is or may be used to embellish original jewelry designs. Both approaches are apparent in traditional Berber adornments. Each strand is unique and there may be some variability in some strands. Each bead measures approximately 11-18 x 23-34mm with a hole size of approximately 3mm. You will receive a full strand measuring approximately 14" in beads (plus string).
