This is a strand of vintage asbestos glass beads in a rare deep pink. Originally made in France, asbestos glass beads were created with thin strands of glass thread (asbestos) wound around a core and then coated with clear glass. They have deep color and almost resemble lampwork.

I need to restring these; the silk cord from the 40’s will break any day.
