These unique beads haven't been produced since the turn of the 19th Century; back then, bead making was a real art. Today, French Metal Beads are most often used in Victorian-era purse restorations,as well as in high-end jewelry design. In general, the holes of these beads are quite large and should accommodate a #12 or smaller beading needle. Because they are quite rare, quantities are limited. Again, these are Metal beads, not glass. Please care for them properly.
