KDW Fine Vintage Trade Bead Necklace #1
This is a special collection of fascinating and fine old beads in various materials. Clay Spindles, Bohemian Pressed Glass from the 1800s., Granite, 200BC to 300 AD from Djenne in Mali, Ashanti brass, Vintage Murano Trade, , Ancient glass, Hand carved Helmet shell bead from the Bay of Bengal...and put together the way Frida Kahlo would have loved. Strung on strong cotton thread and spaced with handsome Copper bead caps, it is made deliberately so it can be worn different lengths because of the sliding knots. Oh yes, there is one lamp work bead in here made by me so that the ages dance together!
Materials: Copper, Trade Bead, and other diverse materials. Each bead historic.
