This trade bead necklace has three millefiori glass tube beads, two striped tube beads and 6 blue glass pony beads. The leather cord measures 17 inches with the lobster clasp, and there is an additional 1.5 inch extender chain to up to 18.5 inches in length.

The millefiori beads have mostly blue, red and yellow in them. Millefiori beads get their names from the two Italian words: "mille", meaning thousand, and "fiori", meaning flowers. The Italians from Murano are known for their millefiori beads.

The origin of trade beads is interesting. Originally, Portuguese ships landing in Africa between the 16th and 20th centuries brought and traded beads for goods and services. Since then, the Africans used them for trading and they became known as African Trade beads. Modern trade beads mimic the patterns of the traditional antiques and some are actually made in many countries including Africa.
