This beautiful strand of brass beads are old in age and rich in character. Sourced from the Ethiopian countryside, these special beads have surely passed through many hands before making their way to us. Fashioned in a traditional padre shape, beads such as these are often times used as rosaries in traditional Ethiopian circles. Each bead measures approximately 7-10 x 7-8mm in size, with a large hole size of 3-4mm. Each strand is approximately 12 inches in length. We've been collecting these hard-to-find beads for years, but we've finally decided it's time to part ways. Get yours while you can! Limited supply available. There is variation in size and shape of beads between strands.
