Red Bohemian Glass Historic Bead in Ornate Silver Bead Caps
Yes, the Sterling Silver bead caps here are large and very beautifully made probably a long time ago too.. The large red bead has the most wonderful surface texture as a result of its travels and the wearers. These beads were made for the Tibetan market and gold was used to get this beautiful red. This opaque red is not made in Czech beads anymore. The more recent beads are clear red and this shape and size is really antique and rare. I collect them and know how hard they are to find. The bead is strung on black cotton cord with two sliding knots for easy wear.. It is sensational worn with matching lipstick!
