Here we are at day 4 in the week of giveaways. Today’s giveaway is very unique, and if you love vintage or antique stuff, you will appreciate this one.
This bracelet is made from antique trade beads. If you have ever looked at my Desert Raven Art site, you know I love to use these old beads in jewelry, and to accent my beadwork pieces. (And don’t forget about the sale on my jewelry and beadwork.)
The Venetian’s began making glass beads in the early 1800’s. By the late 1800’s they were trading them by the ship full to Africa for gold, ivory, and slaves. These old beads have been making their way to America since about the mid 1960’s. Every bead was hand made, in small artisan shops in Venice.
This is a double bracelet with a mixture of old beads and newer beads. The button is pipestone. I can adjust the size from 6 1/2″ to 7′” to better fit the winner. Giveaway is open to US only.
