What a beautiful vintage vinyl beads strand in a super bright sunny yellow with a mixture of neon pink, green, blue and, burgundy vinyl beads. Please zoom in pictures for more details.
They are made in Africa from a material called Vulcanite, used to make vinyl records and popularly known as vinyl record beads. They are one of my favorite beads, full of colors and history and known in Mali as Jigida beads, commonly used to shape the women’s waist.
