Joy Returns Again


These beads have the coolest story: called "leftover" beads in their native Africa, artisans craft them by taking smaller, discarded millefiori beads (with flower-like patterns learned from Italian merchants traveling and trading in Africa centuries ago) that were, literally, left over from other designs and melting them together to create larger ring-like beads. The patterns are vibrant and colorful - joyfully joined here in hues of blue, green, and red. A trio of golden blooms (a vintage brooch-earrings set by Sarah Coventry) shines at the side, and a hammered bronze toggle from Thailand clasps the design at back. Measures 18" in length.
