All of the imitation amber beads on this strand have been double drilled and some have been carved to alter the shapes. These were typically worn as hair ornaments. In addition to these there are large hippo bone beads, an old granite bead as well as the SMALLEST glass Conus monetary bead replica (10mm x 6mm)I have ever seen.

The bone beads are large and average 25mm x 45mm.
