You May Ask “What are Vintage Beads?”

If you look in the dictionary under the word “Vintage” you may find something like, “recognized as being of high quality and lasting appeal” or  “the period of time when something appeared or began”.  In a thesaurus you may find the words “Classic” or “Antique”.

You also might find the words "vintage beads" used many different ways as you search the internet. To us, a real vintage bead has to be at least 35 years old.  A vintage bead should also have a unique value and appeal.  Our Vintage Beads make your pieces and designs special because all of our vintage beads are of limited quantities and are little works of art unto themselves.  We believe that Vintage beads are little pieces of history, a reminder of eras gone by.  Many vintage beads were produced completely different then today’s beads, and this is simply apparent by their touch and feel and none of our Vintage Beads will ever be produced again.

We feature vintage beads both glass and plastic from all over the world.  You will find Japanese beads, East and West German beads, Vintage Cabochons, Vintage cameos, Vintage Swarovskis, Italian Beads, Czech beads and many more.  Many of our Vintage Beads have original tags.

We suggest that you check back often.  We continually add Vintage Beads, Cabochons, Finding and Cameos from our vast collection.

Thanks for visiting us!
