Givre beads refers to a crystal colour or transparent bead with a swirl of interior colour similar to that found in a childs marble. The beads are usually made using a glass encasing technique before they are pressed into moulds, and then polished. The term is attributed to glass manufacturer Swarovski derived from the French word meaning frosty.

Cherry Brand glass beads were produced in occupied Japan, post WWII. They were exported to the USA and to American bead dealers. At one point beads were one of top ranking products for bringing much needed foreign currency into Japan. In their way beads helped to rebuild Japan. The beads were made by home workers rather than in a factory environment.
