Beautiful Strand of Small Eja Glass Beads
Here we have a precious 22" strand of small Eja or Aja beads. Eja beads are altered (heated up and then squashed flat) Venetian beads from the late 1800s that were primarily traded in Nigeria. This strand features five color variations. Sizes average 5 – 9mm in diameter x 1 – 3mm thick (with a few 5mm in thickness).
