More than twenty-five years ago, these flat oval beads were made in India and imported to America. The base metal is 100% copper with silver plating and both Janice and Kate thought they were sterling. Anyway, we love them and they’re limited in availability. Hole size is large enough you can string through .5mm leather, so there are lots of design possibilities, including a 5-7 Wrap Tahoe. Some beads show blemishes and age and some may need polishing. We recommend Pro-Polish Pads. Since these beads are vintage and were imported before lead and nickel standards were implemented, we cannot promise they meet guidelines. We do not recommend them for use in jewelry for children.
Sold in package of 5 beads.
