I acquired this necklace of African Trade Beads through the estate sale of a Southern California silversmith. I do not have the history of this necklace or the provenance of the beads. I purchased it because of the beautiful African Trade beads, although it obviously could be worn as is.

The vintage necklace is about 29" in length and includes a polished nut focal bead flanked on each side by polished Bauxite beads, beautiful Amber beads, dark blue and white West African Powder Glass beads, larger polished Bauxite, complemented with African large and small brass spacers and black Vinyl beads. It's on a double strand of waxed thread and a brass hook and eye closure.

In and of itself, it is a very handsome necklace, but I fell in love with these tubular Bauxite beads and the Powdered Glass and Amber. Alot of the Bauxite I've seen is dull, but these tubes are highly polished--gorgeous!
