This strand is part of Russ Nobbs' extensive and beloved trade bead collection that we have had a hard time parting with. In the summer and fall of 2016, for Rings & Things' 44th Anniversary, we sorted through the treasures in Russ' office to share his beads with you.
We carry a wide variety of African beads, both old trade beads and newer beads made or strung in Africa for the world-wide bead trade. Trade beads are old and/or used beads, and will show varying amounts of wear. Newly-made African beads are generally handmade in small communities. Style and availability vary.
