Russian Blue Trade Bead Droplets
These earrings feature rare and old Russian Blue trade beads. Designed and made by Beyond Buckskin owner Jessica R. Metcalfe (Turtle Mountain Chippewa).
Each is made with a different variation of the popular trade bead - these were traded from Europe, to Africa, to the Americas. After more than a hundred years, and thousands of miles, they are now remixed into modern earrings meant to last a lifetime and longer. Because of their age (and travel!) slight variations in color exist, and some have minor chips, all which add to their rich heritage and beauty. We are obsessed with these Russian Blues! This item ships from the US.
