Swarovski Crystal 2" Loop 7mm Bugle Beads by the Foot, 12" Vintage 7 mm Swarovski Crystal Loop Bugle Beads Sold by the Foot: 12" or 30.5 cm These were purchased in 1967. They are the original, authentic Swarovski crystal beads that were post war when crystal was a huge hit in haute-couture fashion and the silver screen. Swarovski crystal beads were a huge inspiration for Coco Chanel and also made appearance in Hollywood movies. These beads were sewn on a dress that was to copy the one Marlene Dietrich wore in her Broadway, New York theatre performance in 1967 only to find that the dress was so heavy the client couldn't move, then realizing the reason that Ms. Dietrich was carried on and off stage and performed in one place sitting on a tall chair next to the piano. These beads are incredible, they are each a sparkling one of a kind with the patina only exquisite quality and age can match! The camera cannot capture the stunning beauty and character of each. They are not the modern factory, machine made or Chinese imitation; these are absolutely breathtaking! Each bead is 7mm and the loop is approx. 1" + on each side-2" + in total. I am thinking I have approx. 4 yards in total. There are some yellow spots on the fabric which I have tried to capture in the pictures and for that reason I will always try to add an extra inch or two in measuring. Please understand that these are heavy and the quality unsurpassed.
