Faux Mended African Amber Beads from the African Trade.
These are nicely done faux amber beads made to look like old mended amber beads (broken beads were sometimes mended with silver so the bead could be rescued).
These are well worn beads, with lots of variation and great to use for design.
Strand of 28 beads. Bead sizes range from 24-35mm diameter.
Not real amber. Made of bakelite, resin or plastic.
