Antique Excavated Mixed Pearlized Venetian and Nila Beads from Mali - Rita Okrent Collection (AT0628e)
These small antique mixed strands of Venetian and Nila beads beads glow, with almost a mother-of-pearl quality to them.
Note: the current batch of strands has more blue beads in the mix. I have added variations so please choose if you prefer the strands that are more neutral or have more blues and other colors mixed in.
Bead diameters approximately 3-4mm each. 22”+ of beads on the strand. This doesn't count string or raffia. Most strands are strung on wire and not raffia.
Each strand will have a slightly different mix of beads, but the primary color is white and secondary color is off-white or beige. Then you get yellows, blues, greens and browns.
Each strand is unique and may vary slightly in size and color from strands pictured.
Colors are most apparent in these strands after washing them, wearing them or treating them with a bit of olive oil.
