This charismatic Necklace showcases 2 strands of Vintage African Glass Trade Beads. The Trade Beads are formed in a wheel or heishi shape, and are 7mm tall and 8mm in circumference with some variation. Each Bead is unique, and banded with a blend of navy blue, green and cream. The Trade Beads have a glossy finish and are smooth to the touch. They are in excellent condition, given they are over 100 years old. We've paired the African Glass Trade Beads with 6mm black Onyx Rounds, and 5.5mm translucent blue Faceted Glass. These stones blend beautifully with the tones of the Trade Beads and the Faceted Glass adds subtle sparkle. At the top of the Necklace the 2 strands of African Trade Beads transition to 2 strands of 2.5mm Obsidian Rounds, streamlining the silhouette. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 48 grams and is 21 inches long.
