These are really unbelievable beautiful scented paste beads. I have some old amberpaste necklaces and a clove necklace (about 15 years old) from the Bedouin market in Beer Sheva, (which is very near to my home). When you gently rub the beads/cloves on the inner side of your thumb you can still smell them.

@Thanks immensely  ladies for the recipes! I copied their links, so someday, when it is nice and warmer than right now, I will give it a try! (If I can find all the ingredients).  It sounds  exciting!!!!

The most beautiful scented beads I`ve ever seen! I do like the way the handmade properties are fairly obvious. A most informative article, Leonor. Thank you.

Great recipes, Patti. I intend to have a bash at making them up sometime.

Very nice, I love these scented beads! Beautiful photos too,  especially the one above! I thought I had written a comment already, but obviously I did not. It is so nice to have a necklace that looks good AND smells good!  In Mali they also use cloves. It was one of the first things my (Malian) husband made for me after the marriage - a clove necklace. By now (14 years later), the smell is gone, of course, but I still have it, although it is only a simple necklace with cloves only.  The ones shown on the photos are very special and beaautiful! Just a pity, that we cannot smell them through the Internet! Who knows some day in the future, technique can perhaps do the impossible...! Anyway, thanks for showing them and all the info, I love it.
