Many of these were not sewn. Fabric or ribbon was used and twisted around a marble, then a bead was pur of the twist, and the next marble was added until the correct length was achieved.

Thank you! That's interesting! I do know that my mom's beads were sewn. She would sew a tube, insert the marble on the inside and then insert a bead on the outside and repeat. But it is interesting to know the various methods. Thank you for commenting!
