About Snake Beads

Snake beads were popularly worn by members of traditional African society as a form of protection from evil charms and ill fate. The modern woman, although not in the least bit superstitious, may also adorn herself in attractive snake beads by simply slipping a strand over her head. Alternatively, one may get a little creative and use a strand to accent a unique piece to wear or to give away as a gift. An exquisite modern design of African snake beads features long 22 – 28 inch strands of handmade glass beads which are interlocked in a design resembling snake vertebra and strung on raffia.

“Snake Beads” hit mainstream media

African “Snake Beads” have been getting a lot of attention this month.  On the August 2010 cover of Seventeen Magazine, Rihanna is seen wearing several strands of the beads (Click to see cover).  A little more digging and it was discovered that the beads featured were from boutique store Dannijo for a price of nearly $600.

Why spend that much when you can get the same beads for under $20 from Rex’s African Bead Shop!?
