Description

This easy choker is made from remarkable beads. The weathered white beads with eroded blue trailing design are venetian glass trade beads from the 19th century.

The blue beads in the necklace were purchased in Indonesia between 1992 - 1996. They are denim blue drawn glass beads called Indo-Pacific, or trade wind beads. This type of bead was made abundantly and traded widely during a long period estimated to have occurred between the 1st century BC and the 12th century AD. Some of the beads on this necklace are partially opalized which suggests that they were excavated. There were many centers of production and the beads were traded from India to the Philippines, from Africa to China and beyond. There is evidence of nomadic production as well.

They are strung on on a knotted raw silk cord with sterling silver beads and clasp hand made in Bali to enhance the subtle beauty of this ancient glass.

This necklace is 16" long.
