History of the Roman Glass beads:
Why not own, your very own piece of history, Admire this unique necklace made from ancient glass pieces found in the region along the historic silk road. These very special ancient excavated beads are found in Mauritania and Mali, specifically in the caravan towns of Timbuktu, Mopti, Djenne and Gao. They Beads vary in colour, and iridescence, and are thought to be somewhere in between 600-1000 years old, or more.

Commonly referred to as Roman Glass, the material for these beads is derived from ancient cups, vases, and perfume containers that have sustained the travails of time. The glass pieces have been carefully cut, drilled, and strung together but you can see still the variation in colour of the ancient glass. No two beads are alike. Truly something special to have in any jewellery collection.
