VINTAGE BEAD EARRINGS Turkish Bloom - Japanese Tensha,Teal Crystal

Image Description
Vintage turquoise flowers gold foil Japanese tensha beads 1970, Vintage gold filled beads 1940,faceted crystal

Although Japanese in origin, these vintage beads, when combined with the ornate gold abacus bead from the 1940's, and the faceted crystal, took on a very exotic Turkish look to me.

Each tensha barrel shaped bead is approximately 1/2" wide and long and has an ornate floral pattern of deep turquoise with gold foil
The ornate gold filled abacus bead that sits above it came out of an old estate sale of beads accumulated during the 1940's and picks up the gold of the tensha bead.

Total length of these earrings is approximately 1 1/8" and they have been finished on gold plated french ear wires.
They will arrive in a little box all ready for gift giving.
Approximate Price/Value: $38
