Bead Lot Medium Size Green Chevrons
Twelve medium-sized Green Chevron Disc Beads come in this Bead Lot. They vary in size from approximately 15 mm – 20 mm in diameter. The thickness varies between 8 mm – 15 mm. Some of them are ‘lopsided’ and are thicker on one side than the other. Their hole sizes vary between 2 mm – 4 mm. You will find them all well polished.
Bead makers in Czechoslovakia first made Chevron Beads in the 16th -17th centuries. Traders carried these layered glass beads to North America and Africa. They are highly desirable due to the complexity of their manufacture. Craftsmen were not permitted to leave their factories in order to prevent them from sharing the technology.
These come from a collection. We are selling these beads as a lot as pictured.
