Turkoman (Turkman) Artistry – Afghanistan

Each bead in this collection of five 15x22mm handmade lapis barrels, contain a fine silver wire frame into which unpolished Lapis Lazuli has been inlaid to create a beautiful work of art.

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 north eastern regions of Afghanistan and Iran.

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

These unusual beads would make a wonderful addition to your jewellery-making box of special beads.

These Turkoman beads provide lots of potential for creativity for those artisans with a bent for creating amazing Middle Eastern-inspired ethnic style or statement jewellery.

The beads are often used as currency when trading for goods.

The five beads in this collection weigh in at about 31 grams - have been heavily discounted and now work out to cost $5.00 each.

All our ethnic Turkoman 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. 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 hand-made, contain imperfections and are aged-worn.
