Blue and Grey Antique African Earrings
These petite earrings are made with Dogon donuts from Mali and blue and grey striped Venetian "watermelon" beads. Watermelon beads were made in the 19th century and traded in Ghana (and other African countries). Intact beads do not often surface in American markets and so only a few of these earrings will be available. In a previous life, these beautiful beads were well used and handled. You may find variances in these earrings such as tiny scratches and dings.
