Mali Wedding beads are hand-made, and are presented to brides on their wedding days. They were made in what was once known as Czechoslovakia, for trade in Africa. Mali Wedding beads are worn throughout West Africa, specifically in Mali. These trade beads are multicolored and come in different shapes and sizes. Some are in the shape of a bulb, while others are elongated, flat, or triangular. Each strand is unique, and may vary from the strand pictured. The glass beads are strung in a way that allows them to swivel around the cord. These beads are greatly treasured and worn by Fulani women.
