Item details

These are called "Sumatra Mix" beads from the 17th century and are very similar to Christmas beads except with more collectible ones. They are made of glass and were used for trading by the Africans. They measure approx. 4.5mm on average. Notice that these strands do not have the traditional colors, but have a beautiful combination of colors that remind me of Fall - black, brick red, white, yellow, and a few blues.

You will receive one full 24 inch STRAND for this price.

Trade beads are true to their name. They were an important part of currency used in trade between Africans and Europeans. The Europeans loaded their ships with beads and "trinkets", among them these beads, and traded them in Africa for gold, coffee and natural resources. The trade started in the 1500's.

More than one strand is available. Feel free to Convo me if you would like a special purchase of more than one.
