18mm Tube (10) - Red - Vintage Lucite Beads

$7.65 AUD

We have run out of stock for this item.


Description

Bead measurements:  18x15mm with a 5.5mm threading hole.

Quantity per pack:  10 beads per pack

Circa:  1970-1980

This plastic bead comes from really old stock, back when macrame was in fashion in the 70/80s!  So they are coming up to 50 years old (at least). 

The whopping big threading hole shows a 4mm cord easily passing through in one of our photos!  With a bit of care you will be able to get a second cord through, or one thicker cord.

This bead is such a gorgeous feature for your next macrame or weave!

These beads are not a shiny finish, but not quite a matte if that makes sense.  Our mustard and cream beads of this style look to us like they are hand painted, but I'm not sure about these coloured ones.  The patterning reminds me of an Aztec design with zig zags and dots!  Also notice the ridge around the middle isn't actually in the middle but about 2/3 of the way down (or up!) giving it even more aesthetic appeal!

Beads with large holes big enough for thick rope to pass through are really hard to come by!  But here at Bead Shack we have quite a range of large holed beads!
