Ancient Bead Necklace

This is a bead necklace made of ancient glass beads accented with contemporary 14 Karat yellow gold beads and clasp.

All of the small black glass beads were found in Java and are from the Early Classical Period, 750 - 900 C.E. They are Indo-Pacific beads, sometimes called Trade Wind beads. This necklace also contains yellow and red beads that are from the Venetian bead makers.

The two large beads are wound glass beads with trailed decoration. These are from the African trade and of Venetian origin dating from the Nineteenth through the early Twentieth Century.
