Seed Beads of Vintage Eras

We have just come across a stash of old seed beads, bugle beads and other seed bead sundries. Most are ca. 1910s - 1950s and hail from Japan, France and Italy. Check out our latest stash and hurry! They'll go fast as they are very limited!

Staff designer Ashley Bunting created this vintage seed bead necklace, integrating warm copper accents. Mostly pretty in pink, this stunning neck piece reveals a few surprising purple accents. Ashley embellished the work with little sprigs of ribbon clippings and a dainty lavender bow. The coalescence of beads, ribbon and chain create a nest-like wrapped necklace.
