Item details

Color: Greasy Teal
Size: 20/0
Quantity: 2 grams

These old Venetian glass micro beads were manufactured between the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s. They’re a tiny size 20/0 seed bead, which allows for incredible detail & resolution. Because they were manufactured so long ago, they show greater size variance than contemporary beads. The color is a translucent (AKA “Greasy”) teal green.

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 36-40 beads per inch. These beads come on a hank, with four strands measuring approximately 12.5″ each (or 6.25″ when strung). The hank weighs approximately 2 grams.

One of these photos shows several 3 gram bags of beads next to a dime and a ruler. As you can see, these are small bags (the ones shown are 1.5″ x 1.5″) but because the beads are so tiny, even a small bag holds quite a lot of beads. The photo shows several colors, but this listing is for one bag of the greasy teal color only. 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.

Additional policies

♥ $10 MINIMUM ORDER:
Please note my $10 minimum order policy - you're welcome to combine styles in order to reach this amount, but your purchase should total $10 before postage. This information is included in my shop announcement, my policies, in the description for every item in my shop, and in your order confirmation. Thank you for your consideration :)

If your first order is below the minimum, I'll ship it as a courtesy along with a polite reminder. If your next order is below the minimum, I'll ask you to add to or cancel the order. My apologies for any inconvenience, it's simply not sustainable. On the flip side, you won't find old and uncommon beads like these at the big box stores!

♣ CONDITION & QUANTITY:
It's important to have a clear understanding of what you're buying, so please be sure to read the descriptions and look at all of the photos! If you're not sure, or if you don't understand something, please ask.

My listings describe the size, quantity and condition of each item. If you're not familiar with bead sizes or terms, just send me a convo and I'll gladly explain :)

I specialize in vintage and antique beads and jewelry supplies ranging from 50 - 100 years or older, so many of my items will show typical quirks and/or wear for glass of that age. For example, antique seed beads often have imperfect shaping and less consistent sizing than their contemporary counterparts, and vintage stones may have small nicks around the edges or tiny "fleabites" on the foiled backs. The photos will reflect this, and the descriptions will detail the item's condition. If you're still unsure, please ask.

♥ FEEDBACK:
Your positive feedback is greatly appreciated! I genuinely want you to be satisfied, so if you have questions or concerns, please give me the opportunity to resolve them before leaving poor feedback. Just contact me, and we'll work together to find a positive solution.
