These old European glass micro beads were manufactured between the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s. They’re a tiny size 18/0 seed bead, which allows for incredible 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 32-38 beads per inch, and the bag weighs approximately 5 grams. Please study the photos and description carefully, in order gain a clear understanding of the bead size and the quantity that you’ll receive.

One of the last few photos shows this color next to a VERY similar brown tone called “mocha”. The two colors are quite close, but the mocha has a slightly redder undertone, and the cocoa is slightly paler and grayer. This listing is for 5 grams of the cocoa color only, but the two would work nicely together in gradient pieces with a lot of shading.

These 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.
