Trade Bead Heaven!

This listing is for 10 yellow glass Snake beads. These beads are 8 mm in diameter & a popular bead style. The beads in this listing were made in the Czech Republic & traveled to the North American Continent through the desert of the Southwestern United States. Any buyer can move them along in their journey from a snow peaked mountain valley in Utah on to their next home.

They will add a great zig zaggy yellow color to your next jewelry creation! I have lots of sets if you want more than one.


Different sizes & colors of Snake beads have been made for trade into Africa over the years. They have also been traded into other parts of the world trade. Snake beads of all colors are made of molded glass. The Snake bead style was originally made in Bohemia in the early 1900's & they are still made there today but we now know Bohemia as the Czech Republic.

In Africa real bone Snake vertebrae are often worn as an old tradition with the belief that wearing them will bring protection. But whatever your motives are for beading with bone or glass Snake beads they are exceptionally beautiful in beaded creations.
