African Trade Bead Screw Back Earrings
$38.00 The combination of colors is amazing on these old African trade bead earrings. These earrings are on the original old screw back findings with a small piece of mother of pearl hanging for accent. So Green! So Yellow! So Spring! So Beautiful! They measure 1-5/8" long and the bead is 3/4" long and 10 mm wide. Great vintage condition.
These beads are part of the ancient and enduring trade in beads that spans more than two millennia and once stretched from the Middle East to East Asia and affected areas as far apart as West Africa and the American Pacific coast. Beads are universal and among the earliest art forms. Beads were ubiquitous in the ancient world serving as decoration, magical charms and powers, mnemonic and counting devices and symbols of wealth and status.
