Need more bead garlands? Keep looking on-line, as I will add more as this category is depleted
These gorgeous bead garlands have a rich mixture of antique and vintage beads with beautiful patina and are hand-strung in 9 foot lengths, all in luxurious silver; an elegant addition to any style of tree. I created a repeating pattern with 4 different kinds of beads in different shapes and sizes, many of which are embossed with different patterns (like the antique elongated oval beads and tiny ribbed round beads).
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.
