Great African trade bead necklace with many types of beads and shells and a large cinnabar ball as the center piece! This wonderful necklace is in good condition except for 1 small yellow tube like bead that has a split in it therefore does not lay perfectly straight. No two beads on this necklace are the same and they are each separated with a large brass spacer bead or smaller silver tone bead. All beads are wonderful and it would take pages to describe so I have put as much into pictures as I could. It also has one lone green bird possibly wooden. The total length of this necklace is 26" long and it closes with a screw on barrel type clasp that is in good working order. The stringing is quite tight but appears to still be strong. Amazing beads!
