These antique tube or bugle beads were made by hand a very long time ago, so they will show greater variance in size and shape than contemporary beads. They are very rustic, and quite unusual.
When strung, there are about 8-10 beads per inch. The diameter ranges quite a bit, from about 2 – 2.75 mm. The holes range from about .75 – 1.2mm.
The bag weighs 10 grams.
