African Chevron Beads 14x10-36x28mm

#ASVTB3

A classic African trade bead, the Chevron is comprised of multiple layers of glass that have been built around a pole and molded.  The beadmaker grounds the bead to expose the different layers, creating a star-shaped pattern of layers.  A Chevron is valued by its number of layers, and how finely ground the pattern is. 

These Chevrons are 6 layers of glass, and are particularly nicely ground, exposing the beautiful contrast of blues, whites, and reds.  The beads on this graduated strand were made in the mid- to late- 1800s in Venice.  This strand is remarkable for its almost perfect condition, as well as the unusually small chevrons on the ends of the strand. 

Due to its age and its travels, there will be slight nicks and discolorations, but these help to distinguish its authenticity from commonplace replicas. 

This unique strand of Chevrons is 32" long with 36 beads.
