Beginning with an artisan loop of turquoise glass Padre beads and African heishi, this ethnic design is as ready for the runway today as it does represent beads traded along the Silk Road hundreds of years ago. From Thailand's Hill tribe silver beads and Om Pendant, to Venetian glass and African brass, this bracelet is a perfect example of how what is old is new! There are many lessons we can learn from the bead traders who came before us. Will we take the time to listen?
