These authentic white Turkhana beads were worn by the people of northwest Kenya. Less prominent but slightly more numerous than the Maasai, the Turkana people are one of the major ethnicities of Kenya. It is customary for the women to wear necklaces made of beads such as these. 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. Add a special touch to your jewelry with these truly authentic African beads today!

Great Bundle!

I will use a lot of blue for Spring/Summer '22. The shades of powder, royal and navy blue in this bundle are perfect. They will make great little bracelets, or be used between other complementary beads. Smooth with what I would call a satin finish, not super plastic shiny, which I like.

I love the slight variation in shades of white, and in shape. Beads are in great condition.

So pleased!

We were unable to pick up our mail which we had put on hold while I underwent a kidney transplant. Arrived yesterday and was so happy with all the beads.
