1x Vintage Green Turmaline Rippled Glass Nugget Beads 8mm. These rather lovely beads are a difficult shape to sum up, so I copped out and used ‘nugget’ as their title, but they are a clever shape that interlink like vertebrae. Overall the measure approx. 8mm by 8mm, but the hole-to-hole measurement will be a little less as the shape of the bead undulates. Opaque glass rippled within green transparent glass giving a satin effect.
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.
