Hi Folks,

Anyone know what these beads are?  My friend has this long vintage necklace w/matching earrings.  I think the filigree type spacers are brass, and there ar some other smaller beads that might be glass or plastic.  But I have no idea what the main beads are -- very lightweight, black & turquoise, carved intricately, maybe painted (?) maybe wood or paper?  Or bakelite-?

I'm brand new to the site, so I posted them on my member page ( i think.  I hope.)

many thanks

Hi poger.  Welcome to Craftster!  I can't find the photo in your profile.  Could you provide a link to it posted elsewhere?  Like on Facebook or Instagram?
