"Historically, trade beads were used between the 16th and 20th century as a form of currency."

"The process of making these beads is unique to Africa and has been used for over 1000 years. Pulverized glass of various colors is poured into a clay mold, using a cassava stem for the bead's hole. The mold is placed in a furnace and heated until the glass particles congeal without actually melting and the stem burns out. The Ghanaians have been making beads in this manner since the 1600s."

"These round yellow padre beads are found in Nigeria, West Africa. Vintage beads such as these have been traded in African since the late 1800 early 1900's. "

Use a jewelry polishing cloth to keep your jewelry looking like new.


STRETCH BRACELETS

NOTE: Always put your elastic bracelet on the right way.

Never put on your bracelet by stretching it over your hand. As much as possible, roll it over your hand without excessive pulling.

Keep the stretch bracelet and jewelry away from soap, perfumes, hair and skin products, sun screen, salt water, etc. Many of the products we use everyday can degrade the quality of the elastic over time
