Friendship Bracelet - Heart
A sweet little gift for someone you love or add onto a stack.
A black heart is strung with vinyl record beads and gold filled details.
These cute bright beads hail from Ghana, Africa. They are authentic vinyl record beads, (not the new replicas coming from China!) They are commonly known as "vinyl record beads," as they used to be made from recycled records. Now they are made from vulcanite, which is a compressed rubber product that was commonly used in the Victorian period to make jewelry.
Traditionally, women in various parts of Africa wear these beads as waist beads!
