Glass nailhead beads were used in the days of the flapper to embellish garments before sequins were developed. You will receive 48 transparent amethyst glass beads per lot. These beads have that wonderful vintage finish. Notice the lines in the glass. These little lines were created when cooling the glass. A technique used about the turn of the century. The glass was cooled down with straw. But it left behind the tattle tale of the age of the glass with the lines from the straw. Just a bit of vintage trivia for you.
