This is a strand of 11 Antique red and white African Skunk Glass Beads. They are a lovely bright red color with white dots. These beads are 12mm rounds with large 3-4mm beading holes. Created using the wound, or drawn glass production method. Skunk Beads represent one of the earliest forms of 'lampwork', a process which involves the addition of small glass globules to a set surface, giving the 3-D raised effect.
  • They are European made and were traded to Africa.
  • They show some signs of wear and pitting, which adds to their beauty and story. 
  • Circa 1900's
  • Size: 12mm
