Item details

This listing is for small spacer beads from Ethiopia. Most of the beads were handmade from copper. These measure 2 - 3mm in diameter and 2 - 3mm in length. Also, there are blue, green, and/or yellow glass beads dispersed among the copper beads. They were made in the mid to late 1900's.

You will receive a full STRAND of these copper and glass beads. These are long strands, measuring 32 - 34 inches in length.

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. Trade beads are also being made today.
