Description

African trade beads came about as the need of European traders for a currency to trade with the Africans. Beads worked wonderfully because of the affinity that African people had for various types of beads. Glass beads were particularly singled out because glass working technology had not yet been discovered in Africa. The beautiful glass beads were traded extensively in African and they were eventually traded in America with American Indians! Most of the beads were crafted in Bohemia, Holland and especially Venice, which is still famous today for its unique and rare glass beads.

The beads I use date from the 1850’s to the early 1930’s and have traveled to at least 3 continents in their trading history! They are truly beautiful, unique and the history they have is amazing! The Antique Trade beads in this necklace are accented with pure copper metal beads and the pendant is made with copper wire and wire wrapping, 3 Antique African trade beads and copper spacer beads. It is one of a kind! The chain, clasp and beading wire is copper and the necklace measures 20" with little over 2" drop to the pendant.

This unique necklace feels warm when worn and has such a connection to the past!
