Product Description

While the vast majority of beads coming from Ethiopia today are made of metal, these beautiful red glass beads are among the more rare and hard to find ethiopian trade beads. Red vaseline beads are originally czech-made, but traveled their way to the southern Oromo region of Ethiopia over the years.

These handmade beads carry a beautiful bicone shape, and come in several colors. While red vaseline beads used to be easy to come by, they are becoming increasingly hard to find as they are not considered to be new production. Here's why you may like these great beads:

- Handmade in Czechoslovakia from high quality glass.
- Each glass bead is approximately 6-10 x 16mm.
- You will receive an extra long 21" strand, with 50 beads.
- Strand has traveled at least three continents -- they carry history that people love!

With the bright red color, and rich history behind them, these beads are sure to add a new dimension to your jewelry. We can't promise these beads will be around much longer (at least at this price), so get yours while you can!
