These are gorgeous hand embellished round gold beads covered entirely in bugle beads! They measure 18 mm round and come with an attached loop at the top of the bead. They are lightweight and sparkly!
They could originally been designed as buttons..we are not sure...but basically are a "drop bead" They could be integrated in many jewelry,clothing, or costume designs!
We are offering 4 beads in one listing, but please contact us if you are interested in several sets, as we can make a Reserved Listing for you!
These beads are part of an extensive inventory we acquired in the 1980's from a New York Designer...these pieces are certainly older than that....All our pieces and cabochons are in excellent condition, any small imperfections are related to age as many are 40+ years old.....
