Yet another heirloom piece, this ready to ship dreadlock bead is made with clear enameled oxidized copper and features Hubei, and Mexican turquoise briollettes and nuggets. It also features a beautiful glass spike bead by lampwork artist Genea from Third Eye Gypsys. Like the other high end designs included in this drop, my goal was to make something that will last for generations. The beautiful color variations in Genea's glass drop were just screaming to be paired with quality Turquoise. The total length of this design is a little over 6".
Fun fact: Hubei turquoise is considered special and is often withheld from American markets. It comes from the Hubei region of China and is among the best quality turquoise found in the world. It actually took me quite some time to get my hands on some of this quality... about two years actually.

The default hole size/diameter of this bead is 10mm. I made it bigger so that it can be worn on one large dreadlock or braid, or multiple small ones. Because this bead is a bit on the heavy side, I recommend keeping the larger size if possible. However, If you would still like a different hole diameter, I would be happy to accommodate. Simply contact me, or let me know your size preference at checkout in the "Special Instructions for Seller" box. I can make any size from 7mm to 20mm for this design. I wouldn't recommend any smaller than 7mm though for the health of your hair.
