These vintage 1960's Japanese round beads are PERFECT for Christmas/holiday jewelry designs. They are opaque white with a series of minty green horizontal stripes swirling around the centers of the beads so that they remind me of candy canes or wintergreen candy. They measure 8mm and the holes are just slightly more than 1mm. As handmade items, there is some slight variation in color, size, and the striping patterns on each bead are unique and vary from one to the next. Sold per lot of 20 pieces.
