Such a cheerful palette in time for summer (or any time of year you need a colorful lift for your spirits…) in the bold hues of these old African glass trade beads from Ghana. Cherry red, pale peach, sunshine yellow, sky and ocean blues, sweet lavender, and grass green twist in harmony around the neck, fastened by a hammered gold vermeil toggle clasp from Thailand.
Adding to the fun is a fantastic vintage butterfly brooch by Belini, complete with bright yellow enamel and sherbet-colored costume gem-studded wings. In living color with or without the butterfly (it’s detachable!) and approximately 26” long.
