In fact, the Turkana people are known for their elaborate clothing and decorations which are used to indicate different characteristics including age and status. These older Turkana beads were derived from an elaborate necklace worn as part of the traditional costume. Look closely and you will see the age of these beads apparent in the smooth texture of the glass. Two strands pictured however each strand is sold individually. Bead shape may vary slightly from round to cylindrical. Add a special touch to your jewelry with these truly authentic African beads today!
