5 x 5mm bead, 1mm stringing hole
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!
