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 – 18/0 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 32-35 beads per inch. The average diameter is approximately 1.32 mm

The bag weighs 5 grams. These pictures have been magnified to give a good sense of color and shape. A coin and ruler are shown to help convey size and scale.
