Vulcanite and Vinyl Heishi Beads

Shop colorful African vinyl heishi beads, for fun accents and color blocks. Fast shipping, wholesale price options, plus free jewelry projects from Rings & Things.

Our selection of colorful "sequin" style African heishi beads work great in stretch bracelets and other colorful jewelry! While these beads look like miniature phonograph records, they're not made from actual record albums. Originally, this bead style was made from vulcanite (vulcanized hard rubber), but testing has shown that some are made from other materials as well, including vinyl. Our selection includes both vulcanite heishi and vinyl heishi -- but they weren't made from record albums. These beads were most likely made in Europe and exported to West Africa for trade.

In addition to strung designs, these colorful heishi beads make great washers for riveted jewelry. 3 of our favorite projects with these heishi are the Pulse Earrings (riveted on metal), Sacred Curling Stone Bracelet (simply strung on StretchMagic), and Tschinkel's Circles Bracelet (riveted on leather).
