Size/shape:
25mm round or circular beads, 13mm-14mm thick, with a raised or rounded bull's-eye pattern on each side.  The hole runs through the 25mm dimension (i.e., not through the center of the bull's eye).
Colors/description:
Ceramic or pottery beads with a mottled turquoise and brown glaze.
Hole size:
2mm (estimated).
Defects: The beads are not perfectly shaped because they are hand-made.  Since they are premium beads, I am inspecting them individually and eliminating defective beads before shipping.  However, small anomalies (like small spots where the glaze didn't cover) won't be eliminated.  Also, on some beads the glaze was applied too heavily and has run a bit.  The beads have a very rustic appearance, so minor defects should not be a problem.  Important:  A customer told me that some of the beads have holes that are off-center, and that's true.  They are off-center by only a millimeter or two, and I am not eliminating those beads.  However, depending on the kind of jewelry you are making, those beads may not sit perfectly.  If you receive beads that don't sit right, please contact me for a refund.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: The size of the beads can vary somewhat.  These beads are enormous and heavy, heavy enough that they will distort the shape of a necklace if you combine them with significantly lighter beads.  Also, they may be too heavy to make into earrings.  I wasn't thinking when I bought these over-sized beads.
