old cut beads

these are not partly cut charlottes, but old, real cut beads....similar to these:

 To work with is time consuming, because not all of them can be used, but the surface is beautiful !
......subdued sparkling .

 Plain shapes to bring out the characteristcs of the beads.  

...available here


  1. They are absolutely stunning, Viktoria. Thank you for explaining to my layman's eye, but now I see it. The black ones look like pools of caviar! Pure luxury.

  2. Yes, the sparkle is much more subtle adding lots of depth of colour. Really beautiful!

  3. So gorgeous! The irregularity is so interesting! and your pictures are crisp, well done!
