Price per Lot: $4.50
Lots Available: 3
Item No. (bin): G1696 (prb)

Cost per bead:

30 cents

Bead material:

Glass

Country of origin:

Czech Republic

Size/shape:

8mm (hole to hole) x 1mm (wide) flowers with 3 petals.  The hole runs front to back through the center of the flower.

Colors/description:

Opaque beads, probably white, with a light green/golden brown picasso coating.  It's possible that the green and the brown coatings are applied separately.  It's also possible that the light green is in the glass; without breaking a bead apart, I'm just not sure.

Hole size:

1mm (estimated).

Defects:

The beads appear to be in good shape, although it's possible that some beads may have small cracks or fissures on the inside of the flower.  I say that because I've seen cracks in the center of similar beads, but the cracks are hard to see through the picasso coating, so I don't count them as defects.  I usually inspect premium beads individually, but I can't inspect these because of the unusual shape.  If you receive any defective beads, please contact me for a partial refund.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

I absolutely love this green/picasso color combination.  I am going to get it in as many shapes as I can.

Important:  After working with the beads for a while, I started to notice that the actual beads are more of an olive green than they appear in the picture.  They are lovely beads, but they are not quite as brown as the picture makes them look.
