The amazing design is an Aztec sun symbol. There are 12 points around the bead. This type of symbol was part of the ancient Maya civilisation representing a calendar.
There’s a unique process to making a metalised bead. They don’t look like much, but they are more well-made than you may think! These vintage metalised beads in Bead Shack’s range of beads are old, from a quite famous bead haul we did years and years ago from a Bead Wholesaler who closed down. Not many people in Australia would have these original designed beads.
There are lots of replicas of all old beads, and these are one range of bead styles that have been copied in recent years. However you can tell the different qualities between the old and the new. You just need to feel them and you will notice right away the quality different.
They are available in this pattern in both antique silver and antique gold.
