DESIGN: Glass Beads

All images are from the Native American
art collection at the Saint Louis Art Museum.
American Indians made some beads from shell and bone,
but the glass beads shown in the artifacts
 above came from Europe - specifically Murano, Italy
in the 15th Century.  Today, those tiny glass beads
are made in Japan and the Czech Republic.

Want the look?
Try Isabel Marant's suede and beaded cuff.
