Size 15/0 Antique Micro Seed Beads OPQ Dusty Rose Pink


Antique size 15 micro seed beads in opaque dusty rose

2 in stock


Antique and beautiful Italian glass micro seed beads in a tiny size 15/0. The color is a gorgeous opaque dusty rose – just a shade or so darker than the classic “Cheyenne pink”. As you can see, these beads are factory floor sweepings, so your baggie may have a few oddball beads mixed in, including some larger Cheyenne pinks and some beautiful pink satin cuts.

Color: Opaque Dusty Rose Pink
Size: 14/0 or 15/0
Quantity: 5 grams

These old Italian glass micro beads were manufactured between the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s. They’re a tiny size 14/0 or 15/0 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 24-28 beads per inch. The average diameter is about 1.55 mm.

Some of the last photos show a 5 gram bag of these beads next to a dime. As you can see, its a small bag (this one is 1.5″ x 1.5″) but because the beads are so tiny, even a small bag holds quite a lot of beads.

These pictures have been magnified to give a good sense of color and shape. Coins and rulers are shown to better convey size and scale.
