As a small family run business we create authentic jewellery with a unique selection of beads handmade with love.
Emreyhill is a unique creative small Family business based in Kent. We use ethical antique Venetian Millefiori trade beads! Celebrated among the most distinctive of beads, the Millefiori has become nearly synonymous with the West African Trade. Made from famed Murano glass, Millefiori beads derive their name from the Italian words for “Thousand Flowers” due to the characteristic floral motifs that decorate their surface. Millefiori beads were made throughout the 19th and 20th century primarily for export to Africa. Today they are found in many countries including Ivory Coast, Nigeria, and Ghana where they are also known by their Ashanti name “Chachasao”. Matching strands such as the one shown here are more rare and difficult to find. This is an old strand of African trade beads and some beads may be damaged or chipped due to age however it is in overall good condition. Great for the bead connoisseur and amateur collector alike. These unusual beads may be worn “as-is” or may be used as a unique addition to your special beaded.
