Antique interlocking pink snake glass beads. Snake beads are vintage African trade beads originally created in Czechoslovakia and exported to West Africa. The shape of these beads is inspired by snake vertebrae. While real snake vertebrae beads have been traded in Africa for centuries, glass alternatives such as these appeared only in the 20th century. The beads on this beautiful pink strand measure approximately 4 x 8mm, with hole size of 2mm. Own a piece of history with these beautiful antique beads!
