1x Vintage Lipstick Red Givre Fluted Oval Glass Beads 15mm. I love the hot colouring of these beads. The shaping is a fluted elongated oval that has been gently twisted. The subtle givre is of opaque red glass within transparent red. Length hole-to-hole is 15mm and diameter is approx. 6mm.
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.
