How alluring this cross bead is! The aged look to the metal brings a kind of beauty that only time could give it. However, the aging process has been rapidly increased by the hand patinaing done to the bead.
The bead measures 5/8 inch tall by 9/16 inch wide. It is strung left to right, as can be seen in our third photo.
We're showing several for illustration of the difference in the hand patinaing.
