Mali Wedding beads are hand-made, and are presented to brides on their wedding days. They were made in what was once known as Czechoslovakia, for trade in Africa. They are worn throughout West Africa, specifically in Mali. These beads are multicolored and come the shape of a bulb. While each strand is unique, and may vary from the strand pictured, yet they have similarities. The glass beads are strung in a way that allows them to swivel around the cord. These beads are greatly treasured and worn by Fulani women.
This strand measures approximately 24". The strand pictured is a sample. The strand shipped will be very similar.
