Early 20th centry, African glass trade beads
There is something so delicious about this necklace of many tiny bead strands. The combination is traditional in some African communities and yet it also recalls beadwork of the plains people of the US. It is rich in color, yet not in your face; look for the subtelties and surprises and basque in the warm patina.
