Dogon donuts originated in Germany in the mid-1800ís and get their name from the Dogon people of Mali, west Africa with whom they were extensively traded. Technically called annular beads because of their very large holes, these wound beads were mis-identified by some sources in the 1970s as Dutch beads. Classic Dogon donuts are most plentiful in blue, followed by clear beads, but green, amber and even purple have been seen.

Expect some cracks or crazing due to the age of these beads and the huge distances they have traveled. This wear and tear distinguishes them from contemporary Indian and Chinese imitations as well as from African recycled glass rondels that have a similar shape, but are new and cost much less.

Each strand measures about 30" and contains about 233 beads, graduated.
