Ethiopian Skunk Beads

ethskunk2

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.
