Description

Trade beads from Ghana. Packet consists of 31 total objects. 21 individual glass beads, one blue medallion and one brown ovoid bead, the other beads cylindrical and in various sizes and colorful patterns. 5 strands of beads on raffia, string, or nylon: two strands of herringbone-shape beads, one dark blue and one aqua blue (similar to #1306); three strands of multicolored, multipatterned cylindrical beads.
