Antique Nailhead Beads

Image of Antique Nailhead Beads

Classic elongated teardrops were de rigeur for the highly embellished clothing styles of the Victorian and Edwardian eras. I like the way they pair up to create a heart shape. Or insect wings!

European glass, made around 1900, give or take ten years. They show some signs of wear, on the surface, but have been selected from the strand to avoid broken tips or holes.

Absolutely essential for bead embroidery, as shown on the heart-brooch-in-progress. Their graphic punch brings order to a busy design.

One card of two pairs:
large 8x22mm
small 4x12mm

Unless included with a larger order, I'll send these first-class mail within the US; international orders will be sent via USPS First-Class International Package Service.
