Vintage Glass Sew-ons Flatback Beads - 5mm Textured Grey Squares, Opaque Gray Nailhead Beads (24 pc)

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.

Description

1940's (or older) vintage Czech glass sew-ons. They're square shaped beads, and they measure about 5mm. They have flat backs with a single hole, and the color is a pale opaque grey. The top side is heavily textured with linear little bumps or ridges.

You'll get one strand of these uncommon old beads, which is about 24 beads. Some of the photos show a full hank, just to give a clear sense of color and texture; this listing is for one strand, or the loose equivalent (due to the age of these beads, the threads are fragile and they often break when I pull them off the main hank). They can be used for jewelry design, bead embroidery, crazy quilting, scrapbooking, mixed media art and anything else your creative heart desires :)

Size = 5mm

Quantity = 24

Additional policies

♥ $10 MINIMUM ORDER:
Please note my $10 minimum order policy - you're welcome to combine styles in order to reach this amount, but your purchase should total $10 before postage. This information is included in my shop announcement, my policies, in the description for every item in my shop, and in your order confirmation. Thank you for your consideration :)

If your first order is below the minimum, I'll ship it as a courtesy along with a polite reminder. If your next order is below the minimum, I'll ask you to add to or cancel the order. My apologies for any inconvenience, it's simply not sustainable. On the flip side, you won't find old and uncommon beads like these at the big box stores!

♣ CONDITION & QUANTITY:
It's important to have a clear understanding of what you're buying, so please be sure to read the descriptions and look at all of the photos! If you're not sure, or if you don't understand something, please ask.

My listings describe the size, quantity and condition of each item. If you're not familiar with bead sizes or terms, just send me a convo and I'll gladly explain :)

I specialize in vintage and antique beads and jewelry supplies ranging from 50 - 100 years or older, so many of my items will show typical quirks and/or wear for glass of that age. For example, antique seed beads often have imperfect shaping and less consistent sizing than their contemporary counterparts, and vintage stones may have small nicks around the edges or tiny "fleabites" on the foiled backs. The photos will reflect this, and the descriptions will detail the item's condition. If you're still unsure, please ask.

♥ FEEDBACK:
Your positive feedback is greatly appreciated! I genuinely want you to be satisfied, so if you have questions or concerns, please give me the opportunity to resolve them before leaving poor feedback. Just contact me, and we'll work together to find a positive solution.
