Vintage Cobalt | Long Drop Earrings
This particular style of bead may not be available any more. I bought a collection of Cobalt beads about 18 years ago and nowadays I think that only old ones are this dark because now Cobalt is an ingredient in mobile phones and valued much more than it was. I suspect that Cobalt beads these days are less dense in color. These are lovely. The silver bead caps, deep and fitting. Again, I don't know where on Earth I will find more. I comb the Tucson Show every year for good silver bead caps. Findings in bead jewelry design are everything.
