Mali Wedding Bead Necklace


An especially nice strand of Mali "Wedding Beads." These beads were made in Bohemia, and then traded throughout Western Africa. They were particularly popular in Mali, where they quickly became associated with weddings. This necklace measures 28 inches long, and the typical "tear drop" shaped bead measures 14 mm at the base. Note: the large red "clay" and the yellow "triangle" are both chipped. Still - a lovely example of very nice Mali Wedding beads.
