carnelian trade beads
I have had great fun with a large collection of artisan and trade beads which I bought as a complete collection recently . They are really beautiful in their own individual shapes and sizes. Many of these beads are carnelian which is the most wonderful colour , rusty reds and browns, needless to say many have not gone for sale but have ended up in my own collection . S ome of these beads have considerable age and where used as trading beads , many are almost worn with use which makes them particularly special.
