Just thought it would be fun to see who has the oldest OOAK. I don't have any old ones, so I know it isn't me. Anyone want to share photos of theirs?

I have a few real oldies, but I've gotten them all second-hand, so I can't positively date them. I'll try and get a pic later.

So weird - that bead is almost identical to my old avatar on the old TBS....... Dot (geddit?!). I pulled an image off the web somewhere, I think from a choice TBS had, thinking about it..........

Interesting. I got it from my LD. I picked it because it was the biggest and nicest of the old ones she had.

I really love these old ooaks.  The designs are so simple, but the beads still seem so striking!  

Do most of the older ones have a opaque base?  Seems like none of the new beads or at least few of them have an opaque base.

These look very old, so I have always considered them oldest, but I really do not know for sure.

I wonder when they started making OOAKs?

These were the first OOAKs I bought in March 2010. I think the one on the left is older, but when it was made I couldn't say.

This is what I think is my oldest OOAK.  I got it secondhand from another trollie in a swap.  Sorry for the blurry iPhone picture.

These are my 2 oldest I think

Oldest OOAK? 2oldoaks_zpsae64ec7d

The left one I bought some years ago in Germany, it reminded me a tiny little bid of the old raku. The right one I found recently, in a Dutch shop. I think they make a great match together :-)

Not the best light today for photography, but here are my 7 oldest ooaks, all unstamped. The three that I'm guessing are the oldest of the old are all tiny! The orange-striped yellow one is roughly 12 mm in diameter.

I used to have plenty of unmarked OOAKs which I presume were the older ones but have re-homed many of them.  These were all I could find now.  Beads 1, 10 and 11 were re-homed from lovely trollies.  The others were bought by me in 2009.  I am a bit Embarassed to admit to actually paying for some of them but I remember choosing them very carefully at the time. Ooooops why am I admitting this?

I love some of these, BB, especially the green and pink budded one in the middle, and the pink, green and orange one third from the left. Our tastes change as collectors. I remember purchasing a production turquoise armadillo early on which I thought was perfect and to my eyes now it has lots of flaws (uneven scales etc).

I bought some "tibet" OOAKs recently - I'll check them, they are probably old.

When did they start stamping the beads, I've forgotten?

I remember it was shortly after I had started collecting and my very first beads are all unstamped.

On a more serious note, here are my oldest OOAKs - these Laura Ashley OOAKs which were among the very first beads I bought, way back in early 2008. That was when I didn't even know they were OOAKs (and neither did I know that several of my other first beads on that bracelet had just been retired).
