Shape: Coin beads
Quantity per pack: 10 Beads
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!
