Trade Bead Hanks


11 x 14 Watercolor on Clayboard A hank is a string of beads. Seeing beautiful hanks of beads, with sunlight shining through them is every bit as compelling to me as a gold brick. Trade beads were popular currency in early western expansion, and are still sought after today. Strikingly framed in an antiqued gold shadowbox frame that reflects on the gem-like quality of the glass beads. Face of the frame is 1 1/2" wide and is 2" deep. Packaged well and insured.
