 Viking-era glass beads based on finds from the Birka Black Earth report, these lampworked beads have been created using the traditional method of winding layers of molten glass around a mandrel (metal rod) and then decorating the bead with additional molten glass in contrasting colours in a variety of patterns including thin trails of glass and layered dots. 

These reproduction beads are made on a 2.2mm mandrel, and will easily fit on 2mm cord.

They are fully annealed and cleaned before being made available for sale.
