Sherpa Coral

'Coral' is a bit misleading.  This is actually wound glass.  It is a trade bead that is comonly worn by the hill tribe, 'Sherpa,' people of the Himalayas.  Each piece is individually hand wound and they may be as many as three hundred years old.  I find them only occaisionally in odd places like in Nepal.  They are sold by weight .20 per gram.
