Czech Glass Jug Bead Large Hole 9mm Black
These large hole Czech glass beads are known as jug beads (if you are using beads in vintage inspired crochet beaded jug covers) or pony by the explorers such as Lewis and Clark who brought European glass beads such as these to North America. The beads got their name when they were delivered by the Pony Express. Native American women used glass pony beads, along with seed beads, on fringes on leather clothing and mocassins. They also used them along with other beads to make necklaces for their tribe and neck gear for the horses. Sometimes they are also known as crow beads from Native American beadwork.
