Many of my tiny beads come from estates and collections. On occasion, when I buy such collections there are antique beads included that are difficult to categorize! These beads are an example.
Some of these tiny beads at very roughly 1 mm in diameter, would be approximately a size 16 or smaller...IF they were round. But these beads were not tumbled, and thus retain their cut edge; and they are very slightly longer than they are in diameter. Some of the beads are actually smaller in diameter, but more tube shaped. And some of the faceted beads might actually reach size 15/0.
Each color/shape is bagged separately. Included colors are: pearly white, pale pink, rich green, faceted metallic black, faceted brandy, faceted crystal clear, and more. All beads shown in the photos are included in this offer; 47+ grams total.
