These old Venetian glass micro beads were manufactured between the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s. They’re tiny seed beads that can help to create 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 26-28 beads per inch. These beads have a diameter of approximately 1.33 mm.

This listing is for a 5 gram bag of beads. Photos have been magnified to best convey color and shape. A ruler and coin are shown for scale.
