Item details

These vintage beads were made in Japan and I have shown a couple of beads that have a tag stuck to them. They average 16-17mmx9mm and are a twist in a lovely opaque aqua blue color glass. They are clearly hand made so size & shape does vary a bit. The hole runs lengthwise and you will receive 16 unstrung beads. Lovely for earrings, focal beads or any of your jewelry or craft projects.

There are more beads shown in the photo than you will receive as they are either badly tangled or loose. You will receive 16 unstrung beads.
