Our newest addition to our product line is a sampling of old African beads originally from Milano and Venice Italy, Bohemia, Holland, Russia and France, Spain and Germany which were traded over the years by priests, traders and businessmen. Many many years ago these beads were used as currency to buy ivory, gold and other commodities. Over the years, they moved from one continent to another specifically from Europe to West Africa. We have a limited stock of these old beads. If you are a designer who wants to offer a different look to your jewelry pieces and add value at the same time, these are perfect pieces for you.
