This is a very old strand of oriental beads, largest is 25mm or about 3/4" in diameter. The strand measures 26" and there are 12 large beads and 14 smaller beads. All have a floral/art deco transfer design. These beads are very old and some of them will have cracks or notches around the bead hole on the larger ones. A couple of some fade to the design. They are all strung on a black leather? cord. Beautiful colors and a great piece to use in redesigning oriental jewelry as well as being wearable (heavy, though) as is. These were stored in a black velvet pouch.
