Provenance: Ruth Flynn Collection
Africa Direct has bought a wonderful collection of beads and trade bead necklaces designed and made by Ruth Flynn. Ruth says, ‚ÄúI first fell in love with African beads when my middle child (of 5!) decided at age 13 to spend a semester going to school in Bamako, Mali, and live with my sister who was there with the World Bank. Africa Direct provided so many opportunities for me to learn about beads and make my own necklaces. I wore African bead necklaces almost every day of my career as a lawyer in Washington, DC. "
