Rare Glass Trade Beads



Product ID: 22848 Category: Tags: , , , ,

18th – 19th century gorgeous glass trade beads with just the right amount of color and detail.  There is just something beyond candy and delicious the images do not convey.  There is a special ancient feel to many of the beads and actual translucence in those that look foggy in the image.   Jewels strung them  so beautifully, eccentric yet subtle and perfectly woven between each.

One of a kind

Average bead: just under .5″
Necklace length: 17″

A note about our woven cords.  We weave these by hand, every one of them.   Like all Jewels’ work no two are exact, as each of us.  The work is labor intensive.  When warmed to the skin the cord becomes more supple, conforms to the wearer, hangs at it should; the necklace transforms more than just a necklace.  It becomes her.
