Item details

This listing is for one bag containing 1 oz of vintage French seed beads.

These are some of the most exquisitely elegant seed beads I have ever seen. The color, mauve pink, is so soft and the finish, a metallic pearl, so lovely. The beads vary in size, some wider than others, this variation making them all the more interesting. For such tiny beads, the hole is quite large and will accommodate #18 Conso nylon knotting thread.
Although they look metallic, they are actually made of glass. I was told that gold was used in their manufacture.

One imagines these beads on flapper clothing of the 1920's, and the hats and scarves of that time.

The photo of the paper wrapping is to document the identity and source of the beads but is not for sale.
