Antique Style Venetian Chevron Trade Beads
Beads Measure 14-16mm long, with a 2mm hole.
28 Beads per strand.
Chevron Beads, sometimes called Rosette or Flower Beads, are made from multiple Layers of drawn colored glass. Then ground into a shape that allows the hidden layers to be seen.
This style of bead has been handmade in Italy for over 600 years. The technique for molding and layering the drawn glass was a very closely guarded secret for much of that time.
These beads were very popular with Explorers and the Native peoples with whom they would trade in both Africa and the Americas, where there was no technology for the creation of glass beads.
