Sizes in this lot range from 2.25 inches to 5 inches in diameter. These old beaded pieces have been removed from clothing or other decorative tribal items. This lot contains a pair of rounds that have not been trimmed of the outside faric/backing. This can be removed by cutting around the edge of the beading without any need for finishing. (This is the traditional method and will not cause the beadwork to come loose.)
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.
