Brass Beads

African trade beads came about as a result of the need for traders along the route between Europe and Africa for a currency to trade with the Africans. Beads fitted here as the most appropriate medium of exchange due to the affinity that African people had for various types of beads.

The history of African trade beads dates as far back as the fifteenth century with the coming of the Portuguese.Click to read more at our About African Bead Blog
