Domed Shell Buttons, Mali

Availability: 18 in stock

These lovely clamshell beads are traditionally worn by Malian women interwoven with  fancy braiding and are shaped like flat domed button. Resembling netsuke, these have two underneath holes (like a button). Great for setting into silver bezels, embellishing fabric, jewelry design, or simply a fantastic object. Size ranges from 16 - 29mm diameter. Sold individually, please note if you prefer larger or smaller, or a mix! Will brighten with washing, gentle non-abrasive soap.
