With their rich, earthy terracotta and brown tones, these tiny 3mm Mali Clay Beads are extremely versatile for 'nature' and 'eco' inspired projects. You will receive four strands.

Native to Mali; these delightful Clay Beads are sourced in abundance, and may be up to 500 years old!

Mali Clay Beads are the versatile addition to your beading supplies, because they are:

Made from clay; a completely natural mineral.

Authentic and sourced direct from Mali.

Small enough to use as spacers, or weaving beads.

Gently textured, with a handmade free-form appeal.

History of Mali Clay Beads:

Mali Clay Beads present a somewhat baffling history, since it is nigh on impossible to ascertain their date of production. Archaeological digs within Mali, have realized great collections of these beads, determined to be at least 500 years old. Clay bead production within Africa, is a craft several thousand years old – as proven with the finding of Whorl Beads in West Africa. As a rule, Mali Clay Beads are produced through a gradual baking process in the heat of the sun - although it is not clear if they are made using a mold, or cane production process.

The strands are in very good condition.
