YORUBA, BEADWORK, Nigeria

Beads were signs of wealth and status. Many Yoruba sacred and secular objects were embellished with elaborate images and symbolic designs created by small glass beads.

Most of our Yoruba beadwork is probably made for sale. There are some pieces vetted as authentic in the bags, crowns, panels and sheaths categories.
