Item details

You choose the color! Lovely large 12mm beads. Turquoise is out of stock

These were quite a find! Unused vintage Cherry Brand Japanese beads, made in Occupied Japan, these beads are at least 60 to 70 years old. These are lamp work beads, made in the tradition of the Italian artisans who perfected this technique.

Please note that these are OLD and as such the foil around each bead has deteriorated more or less. Still beautiful but shabby chic. Perfect also for bead collectors. The photos give you a better idea. You may not receive the strands shown but they are representative.

strands are intact and have the original Cherry Brand tags that will be included in the sale.

Please note that due to the age of these beads you may find rare blemishes and of course non-uniformity. . These are not very noticeable and do not detract from the beauty or usage.

You get a vintage strand of approx 24 exquisite beads 0r a lot of 6, measuring approx 12mm each.

NOTE: Please specify color or colors in a convo or notes to seller. NO MORE TURQUOISE

Ready and waiting for your creating....

Please read Shop policies prior to purchase.

Average review
So pretty and nicely made! Can't beat Cherry Brand beads for quality! Will go well in necklaces and bracelets. Sky blue with silver will go with a ton of other beads.
