If you wish to see the pendants that we have left in stock, you could email us and ask for a photo so you can choose your favourite.
Quantity per pack: 1 - chosen at random (may vary from the photos as each is individual - photo is a guide only).
Colours: Black with blue, red, orange, brown, green, yellow, white and every now and then a bit of transparent glass in colours also. They were decorated with slices of decorative glass canes pressed onto the outside, then rolled in a mould whilst still hot. You can see some whorls from the rolling procedure on some of them.
Origin: Hand Made in India - We believe this bead to be a reproduction of a Trade Bead.
Incorporate one or two into an eclectic necklace strand. Use as a feature pendant bead on a leather necklace, or one at the front of a choker. Or just keep them as treasures in your stash! You might even like to put them out in a bowl for a talking point in your home.
Bead Shack made a huge bead haul around 2007, and these beads were quite old before that. The man we purchased them from used to collect large hauls of beads that became available, so who knows how long ago they were made! Our best guess would be around 1980s.
