Take a look at this old beautiful strand of Antique Great Lake Trade Beads. They are Venetian-made and have travelled many continents before being traded in Africa. Beads similar to these were also traded in North America during the 19th century period of exploration when hunters and trappers roamed the west and Lewis & Clark traveled across the continent. Each strand is unique and may vary slightly from strand pictured but will be very similar. Some beads may be more tapered than photo. Limited Supply.
