Vintage tribal barrel Beads from Karnataka India, these lovely ethnic beads are vintage find, Great for you tribal jewelry designs. Spacer beads were traditional placed on cotton thread. These beads are made from gillet which is a mixed metal mainly consisting of brass, and can be mixed with copper , silver , iron or all of them.
THese barrel beads are vintage an have been used, so you will find some imperfections in them but I think that adds to the overall tribal ethnic style.
The hole is big enough its about 5mm wide, and they measure on average 1 inch long but they are not all the same exact size as these were made by hand.
I also sell these same beads in a bulk pack of 100 pieces this listing is for 12 pieces.
THese will ship via post from India and takes about 2-4 weeks to arrive to most countries.
