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 100% unique therefore minor variation from photo is to be expected. Individual beads measure 11-17 x 21-34mm.
