6mm Opaque Red AB "English Cut" Beads [50]
Click to enlarge
Price Per Lot: $3.20
Lots Available: 6
Style No. (bin): G1802 (aia~b)

Style:  G1802
 
Cost per bead:  6.4

Bead material:  Glass

Country of origin:  Czech Republic

Size/shape:  6mm round with molded triangular facets.  Suppliers are calling this shape "English cut".  In the 4mm size, they look like bicones; but in this size, they look more round.

Colors/description:  Opaque ruby red with a silvery AB coating on part of each bead.
 
Hole size:  1mm (estimated).

Defects:  These beads are very "rough".  The molded facets are not smooth or perfect in any way.  For more, please see Comments below.

How photographed:  At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:  These beads are not well finished at all.  The molded facets are very rough.  They should only be used in casual jewelry.  The reason the price isn't lower is that I got them from an expensive supplier.  I purchased them from pictures and couldn't see that they weren't well finished.  They definitely have a cheap feeling to them.
  Added later:  Despite being a poorly finished, "English cut" beads in general have sold very well, so I expect to carry more of them.  I'm not sure what the appeal is, but a lot of people like them.
