Himalayan Artistry – Tibet/Nepal
Each mosaic bead in this collection of 21 Himalayan mixed shaped brass beads have been handcrafted and inlaid with coloured enamel bands of turquoise and coral – inlaid between the brass frame networks.
These handmade tribal and ethnic beads have been crafted by the nomadic people of Tibet and Nepal – a group native to the high-altitude regions of the Himalayas.
They can be used to create amazing ethnic-inspired, tribal or statement jewellery items such as necklaces, bracelets, or an anklet.
These chunky, unusual and highly sought-after collectible beads would make a wonderful addition to your jewellery-making box of special beads.
And the beads provide lots of potential for creativity for those artisans with a bent on creating amazing Tibetan-inspired ethnic styles or statement jewellery.
They are often used as currency when trading for goods.
The 21 beads in this collection weigh in at approximately 56 grams – and are now cost $2.00 each.
All our Tibetan and Nepalese beads contain a decent 2-3mm top-drill hole which is suitable for threading with round leather, Tigertail, or craftline (similar to fishing line).
The accompanying photos illustrate what to expect in your order, while some images have been enlarged to show detail, while colours of the stones may vary slightly due to lighting variants.
Please also bear in mind many of these beads are not new, nor have they been mass produced. They are individually hand-made and contain age-worn imperfections.
