These lovely tube beads are made of porcelain and then hand painted with details from the art of Henri Matisse.
Each bead measures 3/4 inch long and about 1/4 inch in diameter. The stringing hole is large (just about 3/16 inch in diameter), so that you might use a leather thong or ribbon to string them.
These are very special and we bought them so long ago and forgot that we had them.
They come in sets of four beads and each bead in the set is different as pictured. There are a few sets that may have a different bead than the ones shown, but not many. These are all made by hand, so please allow for the variation that makes hand-made items so special.
