Those are Sommerso glass beads. i can't tell you anything about a manufacturer or date or anything like that, i just know what those beads are called - the clear glass with a colour swirl inside them like that.

Thanks. Would you have any idea about this necklace? It's a vintage sterling silver bracelet with 6 stones. There is a marking but it's very faint and i can't see it. Thanks in advance.

sorry, no, i haven't the foggiest idea. i only knew about the beads because i bought some a lonnng time ago. around the time Pepperidge Farm had a commercial for their Sausalito cookies. and the beads were so pretty that i heard Sommerso said in the same sing-song/whispery way the folks were pronouncing Sausalito in those commercials. and so it stuck in my head.
