Beads have been traded into Africa for hundreds of years - the local people loved them and each tribe have their favourites.The main source of these beads was Venice where the glass makers were producing beads in large numbers.
These gorgeous turquoise glass beads are from Nigeria in West Africa - these are circa 1900 but they have probably been making these necklaces for many years and they are still just as wonderful to wear today.
