Kate's Treasures Black and White Vintage African Trade Bead Earrings
I made these earrings and actually took orders on them through my rep in those days, amazing really... Noah was 9years old. He is now 45 years old. We lived on the Sausalito Waterfront in a houseboat. An interesting detail. If you look closely at the one on the model you will see that the wire at the top is not wound down into a coil, but rather just loped above a coil made of thinner wire. Any of my earrings that are made this way are at least 30 years old. I am selling off some of my personal collection. This is a pretty extensive collection of old trade beads. When they are gone they are gone!
Materials: Sterling Silver, Copper, Trade Bead
