Hand made interlocking beads from Venice and Ghana. These are interesting examples of differently made interlocking beads. They are laborious to make, and therefore, economically less violable than their molded counterpart.
The first two inside strands are wound trail-decorated Venetian beads which are intricate pieces of miniature art.
The beads on the middle strand are on a sample card in the Murano Museum (Mid to late 1800s).
The beads on the outside strand are powder glass made by the Krobo people in Ghana, using a hand made mold. Collected in the 1980s.
