This beautiful, fluid necklace of varying blue toned glass beads is vintage from the mid 1900s but the beads themselves are trade beads and may be much older. It was made by the Yoruba people in Nigeria.

It features red tubed beads gathered at the bottom, and mixed materials at the nape of the neck, including metal springs, red, white and metal beads, and different kinds of thread wound tightly and "dreaded" on either side of the necklace. One yellow strand adds a lovely spark of design to this necklace. A few strands have been knotted back together by the previous owner - we think the knots add charm and history. The beads have an amazing hand and texture.

Adds effortless spark and history to any outfit - a true conversation-starting piece.

Hangs at 16" from back of neck to bottom red beads.
32" long.
Blue beads & yellow beads are approx. a little less than 1/8" long each.
