One long strand of vintage glass seed beads made for the African trade. Some are Venetian and some look to be Czech.
(Note: These are the small vintage seed beads, not the larger pony beads.)
Bright colors, assorted solids and stripes, with the occasional white hearts and special shapes..
As I recall, these beads acquired their nickname when bead artist and merchant Carol Perrenoud of Beadcats described them as an affordable beady Christmas gift in an article she wrote in Bead and Button about giving beads as gifts.
* Perfect restrung with a simple brass or silver pendant
* Love so sort these by color, then string a few at a time onto leftover wire links
* Use as spacer beads between gemstones, to keep the holes from chipping
* Very affordable accent beads!
Q U A N T I T Y : 1 continuous strand
D I M E N S I O N S : approximately 33" / Beads are about size 11-0 to 8-0.
