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. If you look carefully, you will see that these beads have a unique patina endowed by the mineral deposits where the glass lay buried. Each glass piece has been individually drilled and threaded to create a strand. No two strands are alike but you will receive a strand similar to that pictured. Some strands may have a pendant at the end of the strand (not shown in photo).
Individual rectangular beads measure 9-20 x 5-13mm. There are approximately 18 rectangular beads and 30 spacers on each strand. The length of the strand is approximately 31" including string. Truly something special to use in any jewelry piece.
Multiple strands may be pictured. Each strand sold individually.
