ornate heartsTwo ornate 'puffy' silver heart beads, hollow in the center with holes at top and bottom for stringing. Each is about 1" wide and lightweight. Sold as a set of two. I will consider selling them separately -- so let me know if you'd like to buy only one for $19.00.

big blueThis is a rare and beautiful strand of African (European) Glass Trade Beads. The beads are blue glass and were found in Mali. Such beads were used in the African trade in the 1800's. They are in very good condition with minor nicks due to the age of the beads. The strand is approx. 30" long (approx. 32" including the cord), with beads ranging in size from approximately 6 mm - 15 mm. These 'BIG BLUE BEADS' have a great history and are a real treasure -- click on the SHOP NOW button on upper right of web site and learn more --
