Moroccan long with trade beads
I have been enchanted with Trade beads since I was a child. There is something about all the hands that they have been though and continents they have traveled. When I design something like this one and also the Long Copal with trade beads necklace it’s hard to stop adding more and more beads to the design. I do find by restraining myself each bead is more celebrated and the design not too busy looking.
