Amethyst glass octagon jewels – vintage pendants and earrings

I am so happy I was able to get another supply of these fabulous amethyst purple vintage glass beads – this size and shape is hard to come by anymore. These are in great shape for their age (from the 1950s, if the packaging is accurate and I think it is – the paper they’re wrapped in pre-dated telephone area codes!)

The 16x11mm octagons are a terrific faceted shape – not too small, not too large, with wonderful faceting. And the color is wonderful – true amethyst, not too dark but still rich. I wish I could get every stne shape in this color!

Your bestie would love a Christmas gift made with these jewels. Or make a gift for your mom.  Or, hey, for yourself!
