This range of beads has amazing colour throughout them. Beautiful cherry coloured amber shades with black markings within. No two beads are exactly the same. The light shines right through them and every angle you look at the beads you see a different shape inside where the black shows.
You will be amazed at the weight, quality, feel and superb colours and materials in these beads. You will see something different in every bead. They really are amazing beads - there is nothing like them in today's market!
Lots of shapes and sizes to work with here - look in our listings in the category Amber Look Beads. Which ones will you buy to put together a beautiful piece? We have enough round sizes to make a graded necklace of all round beads, or you might like to pop in some textured style beads with the pumpkin &/or rondelle shapes, finish off around the back with the tube shape - mix and match to your heart's content.
Quantity per pack: 10
Measurements: 10mm high by 16mm across with a 1mm threading hole
We have deliberated over what these beads are made with, as well as when they were made. At first we thought Bakelite, but they aren't old enough - this method of bead making ended about the 1940s. Then we thought lucite, but then we were going to say acrylic, to be safe. However they are really old stock, and unlike most acrylic beads.
Most of the shapes don't even have a visible seam - you can just see where the seam is on the end of the tube shapes & every now and then on some of the others, but they are really hard to spot. We are going to give an educated estimate of their age as being made in 1980s. These beads were part of our rather famous warehouse clearance bead haul we did years and years ago!
Whatever these beads are, you will be more than happy with their style and quality!
