Need more bead garlands? Keep looking on-line, as I will add more as this category is depleted
These gorgeous shabby chic bead garlands are hand-strung in 9 foot lengths. Cranberry red beads are intermixed hints of dark cherry/magenta beads (some garlands have a mix of both colors while others are mostly cranberry red). I created a repeating pattern of beads that looks like strings of pearls when hanging between branches. I achieved this effect by using 5 different beads in graduated sizes.
Bead strings are carefully cushioned in soft tissue on all sides to avoid breakage and are packaged in our signature Dresden Star Ornaments gold boxes. Handy care and handling tips sheet is included in each box. We recommend that you store these garlands between tissue in their original box when not in use.
Lovingly created by Alicia Giaimo.
JUST IMAGINE, THESE GARLANDS ARE 50-70 YEARS OLD!!! Please note that missing paint, discoloration due to age, and rough edges will be present on these garlands and is a normal part of the character of older vintage items. I have been careful not to use any broken or cracked beads. I have taken good pictures so you can examine the condition before you buy. Additional note: We prefer not to use "mercury glass" in our descriptions or titles because it was actually a silver nitrate solution, not real mercury, that was applied inside the glass beads during these time periods to give a metallic appearance to the colors.
