A collection of 15 rustic handmade brass beads with raised teardrop and circular frames – filled with Malachite, Jasper and Turquoise enamel (to resemble gemstones) - are distinctly middle eastern.

Tribal and ethnic in every sense, these handmade beads have been crafted by the nomadic Turkoman people – an ethnic group native to Central Asia and living mainly in Turkmenistan and the northeastern regions of Afghanistan and Iran.

And there’s no question they can be used to create amazing ethnic-inspired statement jewellery items such as earrings, necklaces, bracelets, or an anklet.

They are hollow, crude in texture, and each bead is individually hand-made in the Turkoman style. The beads are often used as currency when trading for goods.

In this collection, the 15 beads weigh in at about 55 grams - have been heavily discounted and now work out to cost $4.00 each.

All our ethnic Turkoman beads contain a decent 3-4mm top-drill hole which is suitable for threading with round leather, Tigertail, or craftline (similar to fishing line).

The accompanying photo illustrates what to expect in your order. But please be mindful that from time to time there may be some minor variations depending on availability.

Please also bear in mind many of these beads are not new, nor have they been mass produced.

They are individually hand-made – often using primitive-like tools and some contain imperfections.
