The threading hole goes through the longest direction of the bead. Around each hole end is a circle of etched gold, and the middle is swirling lines with a bit of a 'grid' style curved line on two sides. These beads would be very interesting when strung, because as they turn whilst wearing the piece will show different patterns.
Measurements: 32mm long x 13mm wide with a 1.5mm threading hole.
Quantity per pack: 10
This whole range of vintage Bohemian look beads is from stock we scored at a warehouse clearance haul years and years ago! In recent years some of the styles of beads in this range have been reproduced in cheaper plastic materials. You will notice the difference in the quality if you compare the feel of the bead, as well as the weight. Ours are made from plastic, with a beautiful matte metallic coating and are classed as Vintage Beads.
