This would be like buying new pony beads and spending many hours polishing, grinding and sanding or whatever they do to fake age.
There's not much you can do to a cheep bead to make it look old and valuable.
I think the beads you show might just have been used hard and put away wet..( old cowboy term)
A silk purse is made from silk. a sow's ear, no matter how much you decorate it is still....a pig's ear.
The more you learn about beads the better you can buy or sell.
I don't thing=k that anyone would spend any time re-working such cheep beads..
But I can see someone thinking that the ware on these beads might be a sign of old age.
Just my thoughts on these beads
