1 Vintage Frosted Silver Grey Glass Round Beads 8mm. These matte pressed glass givre style beads are made up of different tones of grey and clear glass rippled through like smoke captured in a bubble. They would be a great contrast to a more lively colour or used with sophisticated black diamond glass.
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.
