Sizes in this lot range from about 3.75 inches up to 5 inches long. Five pairs, but some are more matching than others. Blue and white diamond shaped medallions are a bit larger and heavier than smaller round medallions. These old pieces have been removed from clothing or other decorative tribal items. Because these pieces are handmade, there may be some slight variation in size, shape or pattern. Beadwork medallions are made from glass seed beads, small mirrors and/or 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.
