This African trade bead and copal necklace is a great example of vintage Ethnic Jewelry. It measures 14 inches long, end to end. Above excellent condition.
Deep blue and midnight black beads are hand made. They do not have the machine perfect molding found in commercially made beaded pieces. They are even in color and size. There are brass metal spacers.
The large deep yellow butter colored, copal beads are made in two shapes. They are polished to a satin finish. The two bone beads have a naturally tumbled finish.
One of the short strands has black beads. This is a testament to the necklace being tribal made. They used what they had.
Above excellent condition. Hook closure holds perfectly.
