This strand of vintage chinese beads is rare and exotic. There are 8 beads on the strand with amethyst, tigers eye and coral beads added. You can use these as prayer or meditation beads. Alternatively you can take the strand apart and use the beads in your creative work. You can use them individually or add leather or a chain to create a very dramatic statement necklace.
Each bead is approximately 3.5 cms long.
Fruit pit carving is considered miniature food art in China.
