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 mid-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).
