Chevron Trade Beads Mix (D)
These beautiful old beads are a wonderful mix of mostly green chevron beads with a few others mixed in, strung in the traditionally manner on raffia.
The glass was layered in canes, then cut, the design resulting from the layering and revealed on the cut end gave them the names of "Star" or "Rosette" beads. A very popular design and certainly one of the most fascinating of the early trade beads.
Beads are 1/8" to 1/4" in diameter and cover approx. 21" of the strand. They are strung in the traditionally manner on raffia with an overall length of approximately 24"
