Black Feathers



This rare trade bead necklace is made up black feather fancy Venetian trade beads. It includes some premium raised eye beads and an Ethiopian Coptic Cross. These beads were made in the mid 1800s and the cross is early 1900s, and were circulated on trade routes in Africa. All metal used in my design is sterling silver, except the Coptic Cross does have some other metals, as it was handmade from old trade silver.

This trade bead necklace has sold. Similar ones start at $595. High ticket trade beads are not available for purchase through this online shop and may not be purchased via credit card. Please contact the artist at for pricing and to arrange payment via check.
