Antique Glass Nailheads – French Jet 3mm Rounds


Tiny Edwardian era nailhead beads

5 in stock


Early 1900’s vintage European glass sew on beads date back to the turn of the century. They’re flat backed beads in the classic “nailhead” shape — round, with a facetted top. They measure about 3mm, and have a single hole. The classic black is so versatile, and works beautifully for Victorian style pieces as well as more contemporary work.

Some of the pictures show the master hank, to better convey color and style. This listing is for one full strand (or the loose equivalent) which is about 24 of these uncommon old beads. As you can see from the photos that show the full hanks, these beads have a chalky residue; this is very easy to wipe (or rinse) off – as evidenced by the one “shiny” hank in the group.
