Happy Birthday!

Today is the 14th anniversary of what is now Anita's Beads. I opened as Toad Hollow Jewelry on July 4th, 1996 just three weeks or so after relocating here. Miss Pearl moved in about the same time and has been a loyal mascot ever since.

Bohemian Trade Beads

I absolutely adore the color and shape of these beautiful old glass cylinder beads known as Bohemian. We have two strands available. The first strand (outside) is an interesting mix of oranges with a few darker red beads. Strand length is 32 inches and the bead diameter is between 14mm to 18mm.

The second strand (inside, detail shown below) has larger (16mm to 20mm) predominantly red beads. The strand is 27 inches long.

Stop by Anita's Beads in Wakefield, New Hampshire to see more Trade Beads just received for Winter 2010. Shop hours are 10-5; closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
