This is a vintage strand of African Red and White Skunk Beads, or also called Eye beads. The Spot design is a product of 18th Century Venetian manufacturing. 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. Skunk Beads are attributed with similar healing powers, despite being made from glass. This could stem from the beliefs of certain African tribes that spirits are omnipresent, particularly within beads that are 'of the Earth'. Glass is typically produced from silica and sand, along with several other natural compounds, therefore glass beads are considered 'of the Earth'. Skunk Beads are still considered some of the most beautiful and collectible of all African trade beads! A wonderful bead to use in jewelry or all your creative designs.
