*LIMITED EDITION -Beautiful freshwater pearls mixed with a variety of vintage and antique African trade beads. Each bead has a story. The large blue ones were found in Ethiopia but originally made in Europe and were used as trade beads in the late 1800s in Africa. The zig zag ones are at least 50 years old and were made to look like snake vertebrae. Various other glass beads that are hand made in an ancient and storied tradition that dates back over 1000 years. We love the way the bright colors look mixed with freshwater pearls, and our forever optimistic Smiley.
