Will beads ever go out of style? These beads are of created of clear glass and strung on pink thick thread which makes them appear the most delicate shade of pale pink. An occasional pink glass bead is thrown in. They close with a barrel clasp. It looks to me as if one bead might be missing however it very well could be where the strand is doubled. No signature, old-style bronze-colored barrel clasp, and measures 52" in length. Stunning! Looks the same front and back.
