Ethiopian Skunk Beads


Thirty inch strand of old Ethiopian black and white skunk beads. The quality of the beads on this strand run the gamut from very good to fair; therefore, we would grade the strand at A or B. The condition of the beads is very good; there are no visible chips or pieces missing. There are no cracks, except for the minor ones that sometimes appear in the outer layer of these old Venetian-made beads. This is because of the particular black glass that was applied to the outer layer in the bead-making process, which took place over a hundred years ago.
