Item details

These lovely, high-shine Black Czech Glass Tube Beads come from vintage stock and measure 3mm in length by 1mm in width (requiring a thin beading needle, wire, or thread). They are technically known as "maco" beads due to their size, but they are also considered small bugle (or tube) beads. They will look fantastic when used to create necklaces, bracelets, earrings, etc., or when added to clothing, purses, applique, and other items. Remember, make sure to buy enough beads to finish your project as dye lots vary and some colors may be discontinued or sold out.

Size, Cut, and Quantity:
Single Bead = 3 mm in length x 1 mm in width, maco or bugle cut
One Strand = Approx. 200 beads
Single Hank = 12 Strands
Master Hank = 10 Hanks
**You can order in smaller or larger amounts via our other listings or by contacting us (we list by 2 strands, single hanks, or master hanks of 10 hanks).

We can adjust shipping charges to accommodate larger orders (i.e., ship via flat rate when applicable) and refund any overpayment after-the-fact, so feel free to buy a variety of amounts, colors, and items from our store! The beads come temporarily threaded on white string (if a strand has broken, we will include the additional beads loose in a baggy), and this string must be replaced with actual beading thread (it will break easily).

Notes: These beads are well cut, but all Czech glass includes a fair amount of variation and some jagged and irregularly cut beads. We try to accurately represent the size and color of our beads, but do keep in mind that some computer monitors cause variation in color. The photographs are of representative beads (i.e., you will not likely receive the exact beads pictured, but you will receive equivalents). Any items besides beads in the photos are not for sale. These beads are NOT APPROPRIATE for small children.
