These vintage glass teardrop beads will make great pendant or dangling accent beads. The glass looks like it is from Japan but the wires are much thicker than I usually see. This lot contains the following 5 pieces:

1 - opaque olive green with muted multicolor accents, some surface applied. Bead itself is 30mm & overall length including wire is 62mm.

4 - opaque olive green blended with muted multicolor accents, some surface applied. They vary slightly in size and are:

18mm & overall length is 43mm
17mm & overall length is 45mm
15mm & overall length is 42mm
14mm & overall length is 43mm.

Please be sure to read the next paragraph!

If you have never worked with this type of bead before I would like to stress that you should not repeatedly bend the wire where it is attached to the glass. This is it's weakest point. Treat them carefully and they will last for a long time! Lots of times the wires are cut short (an inch or so) and wound around a needle nose pliers to make at least a double loop. If you do this start from the cut end of the wire and work your way up toward the glass. This will not stress the connection.

Please convo me if you have any questions about how to make a loop without stressing the embedded wire.
