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.

When strung, there are about 32-38 beads per inch, and 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. Please study the photos and description carefully, in order gain a clear understanding of the bead size and the quantity that you’ll receive.

The photos are magnified to give a good sense of color and shape. A coin is shown to give a sense of scale.
