This listing is for a brand new, unopened package of bugle beads by Chenille Craft. These are small glass beads, tube-shaped, with a metallic sheen. There are lots of colors: silver, gold, red, dark blue, green, and more. The bag weighs 33 grams or 1.2 ounces. Though the bag does not say, I suspect they are glass beads, likely Czech-made.
