№ 086 Mixed Stone & African Trade Beads
This pair of earrings is one of my favorite pieces from the collection! They feature a combination of lapis, turquoise and glass African Trade Beads that slide along an open ring.
Many glass African trade beads originated in Europe during the 1800s and were traded throughout the world - throughout the continent of Africa, Western Asia and the Americas. These special beads became influential in the beadwork created by many cultures across the world.
Earrings measure 2 ¼” from top of earwire. All findings used are oxidized sterling silver.
