Kolhapur is an historical city in India. Kolhapuri Beads date back to the earliest days of bead making in Kolhapur. This bead was made from one of those old molds, in "German Silver", also more commonly known as nickel/silver.
I stopped making jewelry to focus on my beads and I have a *ton* of great de-stash items available right now. These aren't the studio "leftovers" - these are components I would be designing with if I were still creating jewelry.
