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.

This matte effect is often referred to as “unfinished”, these colors have a beautiful “frosted” look to them.

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.

These pictures are magnified to give a good sense of color and shape. Coins and rulers are shown for scale.
