Love Beads 2
Gorgeous old Trade Beads bring colour and whimsy to this playful Funky Frog necklace. Trade Beads are the antiques of the beads having been brought over in the later 1800s and early 1900s from Europe by ship for trade in Africa .. hence: Trade Beads. Some of you will know these beads as ‘Love Beads’ … well, the world sure needs love right now so i am bringing back the name …. all the way from the 1960s.
The Love Bead necklace is 16″ long and is strung on waxed linen cord with closure made of Christmas beads and a brass button-like bead (that was made for Funky Frog)
