VINTAGE JAPANESE ORANGE GLITTER LUCITE BEADS 8mm pkg 8 RES-195
Vintage Japanese lucite beads that are a beautiful shade of apricot and white with gold glitter.
***If you love these beads, please check out my item no RES-140 which is the same bead but in a 10mm size and package of 10****
*****Please Note: These beads are NOT as yellow/orange or bright as they appear in these photographs! Any shade of yellow or orange or even coral/peach is most difficult to photograph and get the correct shade, no matter how many different types of lighting I use. They are definitely what I would call apricot !****
No two beads are alike as you can see from the photographs, in terms of the amount of both colors per bead or the amount of gold glitter.
What I loved about these beads when we found them back in the 1980s in London, was the sprinkling of gold glitter on each bead and how light as a feather they feel in your hand. I had never seen beads like this and purchased all that the shop owner had.
**I also purchased these same 8mm vintage Japanese beads in a beautiful shade of turquoise or robins egg blue and white - these are listed as RES-138.
I mixed these apricot and white beads with the white and chalcedony I have in my shop, and with West German gold glass spacer beads, for a design I did for the bridge jewelry department of Bloomingdales when I had a trunk show there in 1983.
*** Please check out the listings for white chalcedony under round gemstone beads if you are interested***
Price is for 8 of these 8mm lovely beads which we 100% guarantee to be vintage Japanese resin beads from the 1950s.
I also sold many of these vintage Japanese resin glitter beads through trunk shows at Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue during the early 1980s.
Youll never see beads like this nowadays at your neighborhood gem show or local bead shop.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: POSTAGE RATES HAVE RISEN DRAMATICALLY IN 2016
ORDERS INSIDE USA: A charge of $3.60 covers any first class shipment up to 8 ounces. Our beads vary so much in weight that it is impossible for us to apply a single add-on charge for multiple product orders. We will continue to refund to customers any amount that greatly exceeds our actual cost of shipping and handling.
ORDERS OUTSIDE USA: International First Class rates are now crazy: $13.50 for any package weighing from 1-8 ounces. Even an order for 2-3 small bead items may cost $13.50 or more, depending on the type of material (stone versus resin, for example). Please bear with us for a few weeks while we change our listings to account for the new rates. We apologize in advance if we have to adjust the postage cost of an order that has been placed. We will understand if an order is rescinded when the postage cost is too high relative to the product value.
All international orders have contents described as "loose beads" and are flagged as "commercial samples" or " gift" if you prefer to make your life easier when receiving your beads. If you'd like us to mark your order as " gift" instead please let us know!
All our beads are inspected one by one before being shipped. They are individually wrapped to protect them and then put in little plastic ziploc bags.
All vintage beaded jewelry is either shipped in a little gift box tied with a ribbon or in a vintage Chinese embroidered silk purse.

Nice beads!! Super fast thanks a lot!!!
I have dreamed of having a necklace such as the jade one. But the red one. That was a surprise. Both are beautiful. Thank you! Best, Jane
Lovely color;!interesting stones.
When I thought that I had ordered two of these and then checked out I had to order another set. The seller was very kind and combined my two orders and refunded my shipping.
Nice quick shipping on some hard to find items! Good packaging too!
