beads are from a New York company that went out of business 4-5 years ago--Elliot Greene in NYC--found in their basement when they were cleaning the place out. this happens a lot--never know what will be unearthed!
middle bead is clear--top and bottom ones have foil insert
fabulous shapes--plexiglass better than lucite--scratch resistant. no seam because the beads are not molded.
