Vintage Beads & Vintage Jewellery Components
Looking for something with a bit of history? The BigBeadLittleBead category headings below lead through to selection of Vintage Beads and Vintage Jewellery Components, bringing you a wide choice of beautiful and distinctive items, to add that unique character to your jewellery making.
This section includes headings for Vintage Beads, Vintage Chain by the length, Vintage Charms, Vintage Beading Embellishments, Vintage Findings and Vintage Pendants, all equally capable of adding a unique character to your beading and jewellery making projects. Going deeper into these categories it is worth highlighting a few key areas, such as our Vintage Acrylic beads, Vintage Jewellery Clasps, Vintage Bohemian Glass beads, Vintage Czech Glass beads, Vintage German Glass beads, Vintage Lucite beads, Vintage Murano beads, Vintage Plastic beads, Vintage Japanese beads, and our smaller selection of Antique Beads.
It is common practice to define Vintage as being anything from the 1980s backwards, which may be a frightening thought if you grew up in that decade!
To learn more about the important periods and locations in the history of beads, as well as the individuals who have played a significant part in developing jewellery and beading historically, take a look at the bead articles in our Guides & Information section.
