Price per Lot: $4.30
Lots Available: 36
Item No. (bin): F394 (ava+)

Cost per bead:

8.6 cents

Bead material:

Glass

Country of origin:

Czech Republic

Size/shape:

6mm "Renaissance"-cut faceted beads.  These beads are chubbier than most faceted beads; they have a molded 7-point star around each hole and facets around the middle.

Colors/description:

Translucent topaz with a grayish blue/green picasso coating on the ends.

Hole size:

1mm (estimated).

Defects:

I haven't noticed any significant defects.  The picasso coating can be seen on the edges of some facets, but I don't think that's an actual defect (more part of the look of the beads).  Fire-polished beads always have some imperfect facets.  To read about the fire-polishing process, click here.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

The picture doesn't show the picasso coating very well, which is colorful.
