These old European glass seed beads were manufactured between the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s. They’re a tiny size 15/0 seed bead, which allows for fine 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 bag weighs 5 grams.

One of the photos shows the size of the bag that you’ll receive, alongside a ruler and a dime. The lilac is the color on the right hand side in the picture.

The  photo with the triangle trays shows this lilac color next to a very similar color that I carry, “size 14/0 opaque dark heather”. The two are just a faint shade apart, with this color (shown in the top triangle) being the lighter and smaller of the two.

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.
