Old beads necklaces created by Alejandra, part of Ladakh Collection, 2019.
These are the Trade Beads I gathered in Ladakh, a beautiful and strategic point of the Silk Routes. The routes that once departed from China, the land of Silks, passing by the north of India, till Central Asia and then Europe. Corals that once came from Madras and the Mediterranean, lapislazuli from Afghanistan, gems from India, amber from Iran, Tibetan turquoise and beautiful old glass used as trade beads.
- Origin from beads: Ladakh and Srinagar, Kashmir in 2019.
- Created in Mumbai, India by Ashok, Babu and Alejandra.
