Sandra's new baby Louis is wearing some fun trade beads just like we have been selling for ever.
Mali Wedding beads are of the African Trade Bead variety. Made in Czechoslovakia in the early 1900s and traded to Africa for exotic treasures, these beauties are old and well worn (check out the white one if you don't believe me). Young men would bring one bead to a girl when he would come a courtin' and she would save them. When she married, she would string these into a lovely necklace!!
Isn't that the sweetest thing? I think they would make the best bridesmaid gift. And go ahead and feel good about them because they truly are recycled!!
SO we are doing our first giveaway ever! Leave a comments and one oh so lucky winner chosen at random- Friday, May 7 at noon- will get this a Mali Wedding Bead Bracelet.
Good Luck Fancy Stakers!
