Admire this unique strand of authentic Venetian Trade Beads. This strand includes multiple rare designs including blue flower beads, white dotted eye beads, and black thousand eye beads. Predominantly made on the island of Murano, beads such as these were produced for centuries by specialized artisans whose technical and artistic know-how was closely guarded and shrouded in secrecy. Intended for export, Venetian Trade Beads came to be used as a form of currency throughout continental Africa where they were exchanged both for influence and for commodities. Today, these beads are coveted by collectors and bead aficionados alike who appreciate the rich cultural, artistic, and historical legacy that these works of art represent.

This was a unique, one of a kind item and is no longer available.
