12mm Coin Fimo Beads (10) - Buffalo

$14.40 AUD

Description

Shape:  Coin beads 

Quantity per pack:  10 Beads

Circa:  1980s

Material:  Fimo Clay

Age:  Our best guess is that these beads were handmade around 1980.  They were made in Capetown, South Africa.

Measurements:  Approximately 12mm across by 5-6mm thick with a threading hole of about 1mm.

Sizes are approximate as all the beads are hand crafted. 

Because the beads are cut from a long 'sausage' of clay, the pattern is all the way through the bead, so both sides of the bead can be on show - fabulous for earrings!  Can you see all the colours & shapes in these amazing beads? 

Thinking about how these beads have been made, with long strips of each different colour put into a long sausage, then sliced & drilled, is enough to do your head in! 

They feel very velvety to touch, whereas modern clay beads like this just feel cold & like plastic, even though they are clay. 

The quality and craftsmanship of these pendants and beads are out of this world!
