Here is a wonderful strand of antique cobalt blue glass beads. Each bead measures approximately 11mm X 10mm,making them slightly elliptical in shape. The beads are strung and knotted on thread or yarn. They were probably a continuous strand at one time but have now separated in one spot.
I would estimate there are approximately 90 beads in total. All beads are in good shape. I see only one that is chipped for sure, but there may be others with very small nips.
The beads are a beautiful shade of blue and they are translucent. They have a gorgeous glow when held to the light.
A great lot of beads to repair and wear or re-purpose!
