Size 18/0 Antique Micro Seed Beads Opaque Yellow Bumblebee


Antique size  18/0 micro seed beads in opaque yellow bumblebee

10 in stock


These antique European glass micro beads were manufactured between the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s. They’re tiny size 18/0 seed beads, which give you the ability to create incredible detail & resolution. Because they were manufactured so long ago, they show greater variance in size and shape than contemporary beads.


✭ Material = glass
✭ Size = 18/0
✭ Quantity = 5 grams

The color is an opaque bumblebee yellow. It is the lighter of the two shades shown in the photo with rulers and two bags of beads.

When strung, there are about 32 – 36 beads per inch, and an average diameter of about 1.24 mm. The bag weighs approximately 5 grams. Again, these beads are very, 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.

The photos are magnified to give a good sense of color and shape. Any dust or debris in the photos are generally tiny specks not visible to the naked eye. A coin is shown to give a sense of scale.
