Vintage

I love these beads. I even hesitated to make any earrings with them, because I sort of wanted to keep them all to myself.

But, ah, I decided to make them anyway. Just look how well these beads photograph! The glass just reflects light like I've never seen before. I'm not sure about the finish, but it looks similar to a dichroic finish. Does anybody know? I bought them at an estate sale, and I was told they date from the 1920's. Gah, aren't they just beautiful! Go check them out in my etsy shop.

They reminds me of little lanterns! We used to use empty tinned cans as lanterns when we were kids.
