Vintage Sparkling Beads from NYC
I just wanted to share with you all my great find of Vintage Beads I found in a bead shop in Traverse City. I was told that the Vintage Rock looking beads were found in a old warehouse in New York City. The shop owner told me they dated back between 1920 and 1950. I could not resist buying them because I loved how they sparkled and reflected several shades of blues.
The smaller beads are called "Twister Beads" and are also shiny pearl looking type beads that came in irregular shapes. I bought several different colors in these beads to use on my first totally beaded Mermaid Doll which progress is slow at the moment.
