#ASGPADR

Padre beads derive their name from the Spanish word for "father," the priests who founded the Spanish Missions in California. Turquoise blue "padres" were first made in China in the 17th and 18th centuries, carried across the Pacific to the Spanish colonies in the Americas and from there on to Europe and Africa.

The color of the turquoise beads within a strand varies from a greenish turquoise to a bright robinís egg blue. They generally have large holes and vary in size and shape within the same strand.

Each strand is about 23" long and contains approximately 98 beads.
Price: $30.00 (strand) Qty: Add to Cart
