GENUINE FRENCH STEEL CUT BEAD
THESE BEADS ARE THE REAL DEAL.
24 BEADS PER INCH
4 grams
PRISTINE CONDITION
Top shelf
RUST FREE
BEAUTIFUL DIAMOND CUT STEEL BEADS



These unique beads haven't been produced since the turn of the 19th Century; back then, bead making was a real art. Today, French Metal Beads are most often used in Victorian-era purse restorations,as well as in high-end jewelry design. In general, the holes of these beads are quite large and should accommodate a #12 or smaller beading needle. Because they are quite rare, quantities are limited. Again, these are Metal beads, not glass. Please care for them properly.

A LITTLE HISTORY .........THE FRENCH WERE THE FIRST TO PRODUCE THESE AMAZING BEADS WHICH STARTED A FASHION TREND IN THE LATE 1800S. SOON AFTER, THE FASHION MADE IT'S WAY TO THE USA AND A FEW AMERICAN MAKERS STARTED TO PRODUCE THE BEADS WHICH FAILED TO LIVE UP TO THE QUALITY OF THE FRENCH MADE BEADS. AMERICAN MADE STEEL BEADS RUST AT A MUCH FASTER RATE THEN THE FRENCH STEEL CUTS. IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE METAL MINED IN THE US WAS LESS SUPERIOR TO THAT FOUND IN FRANCE MINES.
