Made in the Czech Republic. This one is being sold by the 1/4 mass (300 beads) per lot. It is a reproduction of the German Givre bead which gives the effect of a cloud within the bead. Some of the beads have more Givre in them than others. All the that wonderful luster finish that makes ya just weak in the knees. When you see these in person you will wonder why you didn't buy more. Once these are gone, they will be gone forever. Original value of $48 for the lot! So this is a very nice deal.
