I call the whirlys because I'm reminded of the little whirly maple leaf seeds. These unique shaped vintage lucite pieces are so unique and very lightweight. The pinkish red ones have all sorts of shades of pink, pinkish red and coral swirled into one with touches if white. The turquoise ones have turquoise and like an antique brown. Each bead is uniquely colored. The pink are topped with a English cut crystal bead. And the turquoise have vintage unique striped coral glass bead. About 3" long.
