These old European glass micro beads were manufactured between the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s. They’re a tiny size 16/0 seed bead, which allows for incredible detail & resolution. Because they were manufactured so long ago, they show greater size variance than contemporary beads.

These beads are very, very small – like the size of a grain of sand. I recommend them for experienced beadworkers, extremely patient people, or those who enjoy a good challenge. When strung, there are about 28 beads per inch. The hank has 4 loops, measuring 9.5″ each (or 4.75″ when tied closed) and it weighs approximately 2 – 3 grams.

These pictures have been magnified to give a good sense of color and shape. And of course, coins are not included in your purchase – they’re simply shown to give a sense of scale.
