Original Message:   Re: silver inlay ebony beads
These beads come from Mauritania. The technique of inlaying silver in wood is called "marsus" and the necklace "glada mersusa." Rosanna is absolutely right, wood is not ebony but Dalgerdia melanoxylion which grows in Mauritania as well as in neighbouring countries Senegal, Mali.
