African Trade Beads

African trade beads are from other parts of the world and were traded to the Africans.

Beads were traded for Gold, Ivory, Palm Oil and more. Most are Venetian.

Beads continue to be traded from Africa today.

In the past 40 years Africans started making their own beads and trading them around the world.
