waxed cotton, chevron trade beads, faceted carved bone beads
This hand crafted necklace has 24 precious chevron trade beads and 4 faceted carved bone beads along with several smaller bone beads on black waxed cotton. It has a tie that is adjustable up to 33 inches. The chevron bead has a long history, which I have added some details below. This necklace has no metal pieces for those that may be allergic.
Chevron Beads were traded throughout the world from the late 15th century. Christopher Columbus is said to have traded Chevrons when discovering the New World. They were introduced into Africa by Dutch merchants. The first specimens were created by glass bead makers in Venice and Murano Italy. Chevrons were originally called Rosetta beads, or star beads. The word Rosetta first appears in the inventory of the Barovier Glass works in Murano in 1496.
I take my own photos and do capture a good likeness. Colors may vary due to lighting. If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
