|"Mille Crumb" beads with Powder Glass Centers|
|Post Reply||Edit||View All||Forum|
The outer layer appears to be crushed-up Venetian millefiori trade beads beads that had black bases. Some beads have almost intact millefiori "eyes". The tan powder glass cores are visible on the ends and also in places where the coating had large gaps.
Is anyone familiar with the source or time frame for beads like these? I'm assuming West Africa, probably Ghana, but wonder if they are recent production.
