Trade Beads

Your future jewellery designs can now have a past! Most of the glass beads in this section are antique trade beads, dating from around the early 1900's.  

Made in Europe,and exported to Africa, these beads can make just as wonderful components for your jewellery designs today. Try mixing them with Bali silver or using them in wired bangles - delicious! And if you make or sell jewellery for men, then these beads are hugely popular with the guys when made into simple chokers.

Most of the strands are one-off, unique items so if you see something you like - don't wait too long Most of the beads are in excellent condition, but the item description will give more detailed info in each case. These beads have lived life. They have travelled continents and been traded many times over throughout the last century, so occasional wear and minor chips to their edges is to be expected. I have tried to photograph the beads showing any such flaws if present, and any other slight imperfections will be noted in the description too.
