Natural Spiny Oyster Rondelle Beads 6mm Light Orange
In this batch of Natural Spiny Oyster Rondelle Beads, the oranges intermix with a very pure white part of the shell to create a luminous light-orange appearance. Otherwise, they are the same shape and size as 0007-33436-CB, which are more deep orange to orange-red. Paired with Turquoise, these shell beads create a color scheme established by southwestern Native Americans centuries ago. Historically, they used several red-orange materials to pair up with Turquoise in beaded jewelry. Orange Argillite, pipestone, and shell just like this spiny oyster have been found with Turquoise at archaeological sites. They traded with peoples on the coast to obtain the shell. These 6mm x 3mm Rondelles are sold per strand & are about 16" long. Join the tradition of the southwest with Spiny Oyster Rondelle Beads in your beaded jewelry.
Priced per 16" strand.
