Chevron Melon Beads – Mixed Blue Striped and Rainbow

Chevron Melon Beads - Mixed Blue Striped and Rainbow
This mixed strand of Venetian Trade Chevron Melon Beads includes Blue Striped beads and multicolored beads. This strand comes with approximately 40 beads.
Glass Chevron Beads are elegant layered beads. You will often find them in Red, White and Blue. But they can also come in other colors.
Bead manufacturers first made Chevron beads in the 16th -17th centuries in what is now Czechoslovakia. Explorers traded layered Chevron beads in North America and Africa. The complexity of their manufacture makes them highly desirable. Craftsmen could not leave their factories in order to prevent them from sharing the technology.
