This strand of Pyrene Shell beads have black and white stripes that twist around the bead creating a hypnotizing swirl at the point. Many of the shells also have touches of brown and even pale yellow tones.
Measures approximately 14mm. Sold on a 16 inch strand.
I'm the type of gal who will look for an animal reference anywhere. I got these right away because I'd been looking for the perfect bead to accent my then-favorite zebra print flats. Well the shoes have long since worn out but my earrings remain. So it goes.
