This stock of old European glass seed beads was 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 3 grams.
The 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.
