African Trade Five Bead Necklace #22

Sold Out

Here's the first of a new series, the "Five Bead Necklace". Wearable art, Historic and often rare beads which have traveled from their artisan work shops in Europe, often in Murano, ridden in the great trade ships, particularly those of the East India Company to various destinations in Africa. Traded, danced in, valued in those bygone years and now fashioned into easy necklaces by me. The sliding knots allow this to be worn at different lengths. I feel that in these days being able to acquire treasures within our restricted budgets is just the job! If you would like to track the specific nomenclature of each of these beads this may be the best place to go, to study and to be amazed..
