Indian Modern Glass Beads
One of the earliest of all commercial bead producing nations .. Indian modern beads continue to be found all over the world .. an amalgamation of styles, shapes, patterns and colours of most types of bead in existence since ancient times.
Colourful, sometimes garish, but interesting .. the beads on the following pages are some of the samples we have collected on our journeys in West Africa.
Offered both for sale and as reference pictures for collectors to compare them against the antique and ancient beads, of which most are aimed at emulating.
Increasingly better quality manufacturing and finishing is becoming very apparent.
