Here we have a unique collection of three natural antique round coral beads from Burma – now referred to as Myanmar.
They measure between 18-26mm – and all contain a traditional end capping of hammered sterling silver with an attractive embossed floral design.
A worthy trio for the adventurous beader – bursting with an enviable dose of antiquity – and offering sheer natural beauty.
And this is where the imagination for creativity creeps in!!
Coupled with other beads from your own bead collection, these one-of-a-kind coral beads would work exceptionally well incorporated into an ethnic or tribal-inspired piece of jewellery such as a necklace or bracelet.
The three beads in this collection weigh in at about 40 grams, while the prices have been discounted to $20.00 each.
The beads contain a decent 1.5-2.5mm 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.
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.
