Item details

Offered here is 3 grams of bagged, loose glass micro beads. Color is a burnished metallic gold, as shown in photo. There are very approximately 28 beads per inch.

Prior to WW I, very tiny glass seed beads were manufactured in Venice. Production of this size and style of tiny bead ceased in the 1910's, so these are over 90 years old. Such beads are great for repair work on antique purses or other old beadwork. They are also wonderful for creating incredibly detailed new beadwork items.
