Wedding Bead Mix
West African bead merchants refer to these Czech glass pendants as "Wedding Beads", traditionally worn in Mali in weddings. These black, clear, and milk-glass baubles are so versatile in design work. A spacer in-between allows each bead to hang down. Strung one after another, the beads will string up and down on the string. Great for earrings. Strands are strung in pairs, 20 beads per strand, 6 inches long. Beads are 18mm tall x 12mm at widest bottom x 3mm thick. Strands vary slightly in paired colors. Made in Czech Republic in the 1920's-40's.
