Many people are making trade beads that mimic the original trade beads.

To get the genuine beads, do not expect flawlessness, buy from an established online or offline jewelry store, and consult a professional jeweler before making a purchase.

These include Millefiori trade beads, Chevron trade beads, striped melons trade beads, feather trade beads, and eye beads.

These were used by Europeans to trade with people who did not know about currency such as Africans and Native American Indians.

In Africa, trade beads were used in West Africa by Europeans who got them from Venice, Holland, and Bohemia.

Native American Indians had used beads in the past and so they readily accepted trade beads from the European in exchange for fur, horse, and other items.

Native American Indians used these beads to decorate their clothes and their baskets, to trade within themselves, and to beautify themselves.

The art of making glass beads probably originated in Venice, Italy.

In any case, we know that this area had a flourishing industry in the production of beads by the early 14th century.

They used millions of beads to trade with Africans for slaves, services, and goods such as palm oil, gold, and ivory.

The trade with Africans was so vital that some of the beads were made specifically for Africans.

(source: Trade Beads) From the fifteenth century, glass beads were used as currency by European explorers, traders and missionaries to buy objects from local people all over the world, in particular in Africa.
