  • Priced and sold individually
  • Turkoman traditional beads, with silver granulation and light fire-gilding, an ancient gold plating process
  • Beads are average 30x12mm
  • I recommend a polishing cloth for keeping these looking great. Vibratory polishing, or harsh chemicals could damage, or remove, the gold plating
  • Turkoman people were traditionally nomads moving around Central Asia with herds of sheep, goats, horses and camels, weaving carpets and making fabulous jewelry for people and horses. Today they are more settled, living in Turkmenistan, neighboring regions of Central Asia, and Afghanistan
