Admire this unique strand of beads made from ancient glass pieces found in the region along the historic silk road. Commonly referred to as Roman Glass, the material for these beads is derived from ancient cups, vases, and perfume containers that have sustained the travails of time. The glass pieces have been carefully cut, drilled, and strung together but you can see still the variation in color of the ancient glass. Strands and colors may vary slightly from photo. These little beads are highly versatile and can be used as both spacers and accent beads. Truly something special to use in any jewelry design. Multiple strands pictured. Each strand is sold individually. You will receive a full 34" strand. Note that while the material is said to be of old, possibly ancient origin, the precise age of the glass has not been independently verified.
