I am so excited to have gotten my hands on these! These are the sweetest little vintage lucite bell flowers I've ever seen!

These are new/old stock from Europe (West Germany) and so minty mint! They are so delicate looking and make the most melodic sound when tossed around in your hand - just like a miniature windchime.

I was able to purchase the entire inventory from a long ago closed shop, and hopefully others will be interested and enjoy them as much as I am.

What Makes a Bead VINTAGE?

In the bead world, I always imagined that the definition should read something like “an era when bead makers used delicious colors, multiple shapes and materials to make little masterpieces for us to covet in the years ahead”.
A small object, usually round and containing a hole, for stringing, collecting, fondling and possessing creating bits of happiness to drool over.
Aside from wine, cars, memorabilia and other things, the word vintage can vary based on the subject matter as well as the individuals you speak with. Within the beading industry, its mostly agreed to that vintage beads should be at least 30 years old, give or take 5 years.
