Oval (5) - Millifiori - Glass Vintage Replica Trade Beads

$10.00 AUD

Description

Measurements:  

Quantity per pack:  5 beads - chosen at random (beads may vary from the photos as each bead is individual - photo is a guide only).

Colours:  

Origin:  Hand Made in India - We believe this bead to be a reproduction of a Trade Bead.

These beads are earthy, yet colourful, and so inspiring.  Each bead has been made by hand.

These could be used for multiple crafty ideas including decorating your own table cloth weights because they are quite a large bead.  They have been very popular for macrame projects as the shape and colours fit really well with the natural rope look.  Or incorporate one or two into an eclectic necklace strand.  Use as a feature bead or beads on a necklace, or one at the front of a bracelet.  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.
