I had these glass beads custom made for a project based on historic 19th-century lampwork trade beads from Venice. I have nearly 200 left over and am selling them in sets: 10 for $15.00 25 for $30.00 50 for $50.00 All with FREE SHIPPING!
The color is a rich brown with the slightest hint of deep red/maroon/plum. It's not dark chocolate brown. I'm sure there's an actual color name for it, but I'm not sure. The photos accurately portray the color of the beads based on my monitor settings.
The beads are approximately 12mm wide (+/- 1mm) with 2-3mm holes. As they are handmade each one is slightly different so please expect minor variations in the swirl design. Easy to work with and a unique addition to your ethnic jewelry projects. You won't find these anywhere else and once they're gone I won't have any more!
