20x7mm Brown Picasso Long Bicone Glass Bead - Vintage
Vintage Picasso Finish - Long Bicone Shape Beads
Made from a brown base of glass with a picasso coating, these beads originate from Czechoslovakia in the 1970s. They have a gloss finish and will give any project you use them on a definite touch of class! The classic shape will look great on a necklace, bracelet or on earrings. Use a small bead to separate the main 'star' of the show - it allows each & every bead to really shine - you'll be surprised at the difference your necklace will show if you use this method!
The picasso way of finishing a bead gives a speckled spotty effect, a really earthy look whilst the lustre enhances the coating, making this effect a really interesting bead to use - no two beads will ever be identical!
Photo: You will see in one of the photos I have drawn a white circle around a broken bead that I didn't realise was in the photo. (No, I won't pack that one into your order LOL.) You can see the colour of the bead's glass base, a reddish brown, and then the turquoise coating of the Picasso over the top. Amazing!
Shape: Long Bicone - a classic bead shape, not used a whole lot for bracelets, because they are a bit long to go around the small circle of a wrist, but fabulous for dangly earrings and, of course, a classic necklace!
