I LOVE these vintage inlaid shell beads. I have never seen any other beads like them, and I doubt if I will again. These smooth beads have beautiful stripes that are made from successive layers of shell dyed different colors. The stripes are in rich colors of yellow, saffron, teal green, light purple, and blue. The image shows the whole strand of beads, but I am selling the beads in lots of eight. The beads in this listing are 25 x 15 mm; see my other listings for these beads in other shapes and sizes. These very cool beads were made in the Philippines. These lots are that I have left of these beads.

To shop for vintage costume jewelry from my 20-year collection, visit my Etsy store rneve (www.rneve.etsy.com)

$2.00 flat shipping within the U.S. and Canada! I ship items by first class mail. If you want me to ship priority mail (it costs an extra $3), please let me know before you pay and I will reserve the listing for you with the adjusted price. I am new to Etsy, but I have sold my handmade jewelry, vintage beads, and vintage jewelry on eBay for over ten years. On eBay I have over 6000 feedbacks, 100% of which are positive. I have spent years searching out the rarest, most beautiful, and most unusual beads and stones that I could find. My prime focus has been on vintage Swarovski crystals because they are the finest crystals ever made, with extraordinary sparkle, clean facets, and remarkable colors and finishes. I have tracked down caches of unusual cuts and colors of Swarovski crystal from all over the world, even as far away as Shanghai, China. I buy them only in their original packaging as “new old stock” and never sell beads previously used in jewelry. I also have unique collections of vintage glass and Lucite beads and stones of exceptional quality, as well as vintage findings. For years, I have been using these premium beads, stones, and findings to create my own jewelry, and have become known for my distinctive and one-of-a-kind necklaces. I have now decided to share some of these remarkable items used in my creations with others who are passionate about beads. I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do.
