Kiffa Beads

Kiffa beads (sometimes called "saliva beads") have been handmade in Mauritania for centuries, typically by local women. An intricately crafted form of recycled glass beads, these kiffas are true treasures! Because kiffa beads achieve such meticulous designs using very basic tools and materials, they have been hailed as an example of the highest level of beadmaking skill and ingenuity!
