-During July and into early August, we shall be away on one of our regular trips to West Africa
As normal, you are very welcome to order any of our items in the usual way and we will put them On Hold and reserve them for you until our return to the UK.
Then we will contact you with all the details of your order.
Our Product Index page is where to find links to all our items which include rare glass and genuine examples of many types of historic beads which have been traded in exchange for goods throughout Africa since the days of the early overland and sailing ship traders.
Recent new arrivals are some Small Collections of our rare and hard to find
Medieval Ancient Beads from the Roman and Islamic Periods .. these compliment the large collection of pristine Single Beads offered for sale at reasonable prices.
There are also some new collections amongst our Venetian beads.
In addition, to help customers with bead identification for now and the future,
we have 130 Reference Pages in the Pictures of Collections section,
showing pictures of many of the Sold items we have removed from the main site.
There are also plenty of very interesting beads on our Asian Trade Beads Website which continues to offer a wide selection of inexpensive but attractive modern items and many excellent quality reproductions of ancient beads.
Specifically available in small quantities for hobbyists and jewellery-makers who want something different, without having to buy the large minimum quantities often demanded by manufacturers. Now offered at even more reasonable prices !!
I look forward to hearing from you .... but please remember that many of our items are “One-Offs” and as always it is First Come First Served.
So please don’t delay if you want to grab a bargain or two or three or ..… !!
All the Very Best
