These most unusual beads are half black and half orange-red. The best way to describe the red is tomato soup color. These beads also feature contrasting raised bumpy dots to add to the fun of these beads. They measure18mm in length and 12mm in width with some variation as they are all hand made. The holes are a decent size for finer macreme and finer hemp. They were made in FIrozibad India, famed for its glassworks. They are 35 cents per bead.
