African White Conus Shell 4x9-7x19mm

#ASOSH1

These African beads, carved from the tip of the conus shell, are a beloved adornment of the Mauritanian women.  Their Guedra dancers embellish their hair and clothing with these shell discs called "al bot min teffou", a tradition that has lasted for over a hundred years.  Each bead has been painstakenly carved and drilled by hand.

These beads can be used in a traditional manner by decorating hair or sewing onto clothing.  They would also make a beautiful piece of jewelry, used with other organic materials, such as wood or bone.  Most of the beads are double-drilled, which can add to your design.  String seed beads or other smaller beads on each strand in between the shells, or separate them by a larger bead. 

String these beads on SuperLon, other non-stretch nylon, or on 49-strand cable wire.  Handmade beads all vary slightly, giving your work more character.

Each strand is about 26" long with approximately 150 beads.
