Red Classic Czech Antique Bead Necklace #1
I search high and low for these beads. They were originally made in Bohemia when that was the name of current Czechoslovakia. The beads were made for the Tibetan market, emulating Coral. They are wonderful. The hole is small, so they sit well on cord and you can see that this bead has traveled and lived!
Imagine it in the neck of a blouse. Smart, eye catching, and the most wonderful red. This is the season! Of course you can cut it off the cord and include it in your own design. These beads were combined with large Turquoise beads by Tibetan people. I set it with Sterling Silver bead caps.
