Berber Beads

Price is either ONE 18mm bead or TWO x 14mm beads - choose size from Size Button (if you want both sizes, select one at a time). Spice-up your jewellery with these ethnic beads - great for a focal point in your summer designs. Silver colour - NOT silver metal! 

These beautiful beads are hand-enamelled blue, red and green beads in the traditional Moroccan style.  Personally selected by MiMi and Nigel on a resent trip to Marrakesh.

The souks of Marrakech are full of beads. Moroccans love wearing huge beads around their necks. Beads in Morocco go back 142,000-years – when carbon-dating records sea-shells about 1/2-inch diameter, drilled in the middle. Berber tribes in the desert have been making beads from all materials for a long time.

It’s hard work haggling in the heat, but we still managed to bring some of these Berber beads back for our customers. With their bright colours and bold designs, these make great summer jewellery here. We also carried a few big chunky necklaces we’ll put on offer at bead shows – not enough to list online.
