Sizes in this lot range from 1.5 inches to 2.75 inches in diameter. These old pieces have been removed from clothing or other decorative tribal items. Yarn and metallic thread are the principal embellishments used on these, but there are a few that have tiny mirrors in the center as well. Lightweight and easy to sew to any costuming project.
Because these pieces are handmade, there may be some slight variation in size, shape or pattern. Medallions are made from glass seed beads and other decorative items and may be backed with fabric, felt, cardboard or sheet plastic. Can be used anywhere on tribal dance costuming and accessories, and even on jewelry. Easy to sew to any project. Keep extras on hand for instant tribal detail in an emergency!

Afghani beadwork is some of the finest in the world, often with intricate mathematical patterns. Please be aware that these pieces have been used and reused, often many times, and will show wear in places. Beadwork can often be repaired simply by running a bit of beading floss through the beads and knotting it securely.
