African Vulcan Beads Necklace - Fair Trade Jewelry

Vibrant red Vulcan beads on this handcrafted Necklace from Africa. Vulcan beads are a type of African Trade Bead made from old photograph records that Europeans brought with them many years ago.

The process for making phonograph records at that time was called Vulcanization, so African adopted that name for these beads as well. Historically phonograph records were available in black, red, and beige...Vulcan beads are often found in these colors either individually or mixed together on a strand.

This contemporary necklace with new beads combines red Vulcan beads with a central handcrafted Dark Horn bead called a "skunk" bead - so named because of its dark and white appearance. Great looking Fair Trade African Jewelry.

Comes in a gift-box.
