African White Metal Tubes 5x2mm (approx)

#ASMST6

Handmade Ethiopian white metal tubes vary somewhat in length and diameter within a single strand. They will usually accommodate leather or similar cords up to about 2mm in diameter. If not using leather, choose 0.018 or 0.024 diameter cable wire to withstand some sharp edges.

White metal is technically a mix of tin and antimony but the term is used loosely in Africa to refer to any white-colored metal which can include some silver, nickel, or zinc as well. Especially in Ethiopia European silver coins were melted down to make beads.

Each strand is about 30 long and contains approximately 120 beads.
