Fabulous silver aluminum beads were the rarest metal bead produced. When these beads were made in the late 1880's aluminum was thought of as a precious metal because the process had just been invented and was very costly to produce! These tiny metal beads from France are in perfect condition. Unsurpassed for jewelry making because of their beauty, light weight and subtle shine. Excellent for restoration and embroidery. You will receive one complete hank as shown with the original made in France label.
