Natural Silk Bead Cord
For centuries, silk has been the traditional beading material in necklace manufacturing. Pure natural silk feels incredibly soft and smooth. Silk threads have good tensile strength and little stretch, which make them the ideal choice for many works and knotting. Necklaces made with natural silk drape naturally along the contours of the body and always project a look of elegance and beauty.
GRIFFIN 100% Natural Silk only ever originates from the high-quality centre (filament silk) of the silk cocoon thread and is twisted three times. Only this sleek thread has the characteristic lustre and the irresistible natural beauty of pure natural silk. The Carded Natural Silk Bead Cord from GRIFFIN GmbH is only made from “the best of the best” 100% natural silk, and has been on the market since 1866.
Each Card contains two metres (approx. 79 inch) of 100% natural thread with a stainless steel needle attached.
Pure natural silk and precious jewellery combine in perfect harmony.

These handcut glass seed beads were manufactured in Murano, Italy by the Societa Veneziana Conterie between the late 1800s and the 1920s.They are an exquisite example of fine Venetian craftsmanship.

Many of the glass canes used in the manufacture of these beads date back much further than the formation of the consortium.
Due to the HAND-CRAFTED nature of our vintage selections, certain variances in shape, size, and uniformity are to be expected, and embraced.
