QUANTITY: 144 Ruby Red Vintage Czech Barrel Beads with Gold Detail SIZE: 9mm x 7mm, Drilled Horizontally STYLE: Barrel-Shaped COLOR: Ruby (Red) UNUSED VINTAGE STOCK CLOSEOUT SALE PRICE
These vintage barrel beads are not only sweet but priced to sell. Originating in the Czech Republic, they are well over 50 years old. These beads are smooth glass with molded recesses where they have been hand-painted with gold to enhance the detail. The painting is far from perfect which reminds me that a human touched each one of these and adds to its simple charm. These beads are drilled horizontally and would be the perfect spot of color for embellishing everything from necklaces and bracelets to scrapbooking pages. I recently strung them with wire and spelled out my best friend's name.
