These pendants work really well with one of our extra strong 10mm jumprings through the threading hole, so that you can easily place your cord through the ring - this will turn the pendant so that it sits flat to the front as you wear it. You need to use a large jumpring so that it can 'reach' into the bead far enough to go through the hole without losing it's shape.
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?
They were made in Capetown, South Africa many many years ago & we have stock of these in so many varieties! Circa: 1980s
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!
