A really interesting nugget style bead. There are small lines running across and around, like veins in stone. These are uncirculated vintage New Old Stock beads. A style unlike any I've seen before.

As these beads are vintage, they may have spots or scratches on them, nothing out of line with the age. Many could probably be removed with a good polish. Additionally, a few of these beads have small black spots.

A story about copper. My family has a cabin in Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula. 100 years ago, this area of Michigan was home to the world’s largest copper mines. It’s a rich history and the people there are quite proud of it. You can find copper jewelry and knickknacks in every gift shop. Affordable and lovely, I always bought a piece of copper jewelry as a souvenir. While in high school, talking to a friend, I said, “some people like silver, some people like gold, but I like copper.” Though I now giggle at my 15-year-old self too, I had no idea why a teacher’s aide who overheard me started laughing. But, it’s still true. I still love copper and think this red metal makes a lovely addition to all kinds of jewelry, either in combination with other metals or on its own.

Measurements are made to the nearest millimeter.
