Rare, striped, golden, long, Greenheart trade beads (34mm X 11mm) with old, brass, bicone beads (8mm X 9mm) from Ghana, 21 inch long necklace. These beads are from the first half of the 20th century. Overall condition is good, although surface ios are marred on several of the beads. Small chips, corrosion and pitting are a normal part of their patina and attests to their age and extensive use. Finally, these beads have been strung together using a laborious, macrame technique.

To have survived to the present, these beads have been cherished by their previous owners. To best care for this necklace, it is recommended that you store it flat and separate from other jewelry to reduce the chance of damage to your beads. To maintain the wonderful old patina, it is recommended that you do not polish these metal beads. We hope you enjoy and treasure your necklace as much as its previous owners have!
