Dark Faceted Russian Blues


Lovely strand of lovely hand-faceted dark blue Russian Blue trade beads.  These beads were made in Bohemia in the 19th century and traded to Africa.  (The term Russian Blues comes from the fact that similar beads were supposedly traded in the Pacific Northwest by Russian fur traders.)

These beads are an especially lovely cobalt blue color.  The strand measures 26 inches long.  Individual beads measure between 18 - 21 mm in diameter.
