These old Venetian glass seed beads were manufactured between the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s. They’re a tiny size 16/0 seed bead, which allows for fine detail & resolution. These hand made antiques show greater variance in size and shape than contemporary beads.

These beads are very, very small. I recommend them for experienced beadworkers, extremely patient people, or those who enjoy a good challenge. When strung, there are about 26-30 beads per inch. The diameter averages approximately 1.38 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.
