MATERIALS, MEASUREMENTS & QUANTITIES

✭ Material = glass
✭ Size = 16/0
✭ Quantity = 2 strands

These old European 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 28-32 beads per inch. The diameter averages approximately 1.30 mm.

This listing is for 1 mini hank with 4 strands of beads. It measures about 11″ long when stretched out flat, or 5.5″ when tied in a loop. These hanks are smaller than most that I sell, averaging  about 1.5 grams each.

Photos have been magnified for clarity. Rulers and coins are shown for a sense of scale.
