1 Vintage Czech Glass Beads Blue Nailhead Beads 6mm (00599-001)
1 Vintage Czech Glass Beads Royal Blue Opaque Pressed Glass Nailhead Beads 6mm. Nailhead beads were intended to be sewn onto garments and have flat backs that were not intended to be seen. The fashion for using these beads on clothing ran from the end of the 19th century to the flapper dresses of the 1920s. The name nailhead refers to the shaping of these beads as they are circular and domed rather like a nail.
The benefit for jewellery designs is that with their flat backs these Czechoslovakian beads will lie flat on the skin making them perfect for making close fitting pieces such as choker necklaces.
These opaque Czech glass beads measure 6mm across and 3mm high.
Vintage nailhead beads manufactured in Czechoslovakia.
