Price Per Lot: $3.00
Lots Available: 5
Style No. (bin): R034 (aka+x)

Style no.: R034
Beads per lot: 25
Cost per bead: 12 cents
Bead material: Ceramic
Country of origin: Not sure, possibly Japan
Size/shape: 18mm pinched ovals (ovals with many uneven sides as if they had been pinched with fingers).  They are 10mm wide at the widest point, and 8mm wide at the narrowest point.
Colors/description: White ceramic beads with a mottled red surface (probably sprayed with dye).  The surface of the beads is not shiny.
Hole size: 1.5mm (estimated).
Defects: The shape of these beads is uniform from one to the next, but there are breaks in the dye where you can see the underlying white bead.  It appears that the beads were lying on a surface when they were sprayed with the red dye, and the portion of the bead that was against the surface sometimes remained white.  Basically, these are rustic-looking beads, and the defects just described are part of the "look" of the beads.
How photographed: Under two daylight-balanced lamps.  The close-up shots may show defects that the human eye can't discern.
Comments: These beads are from my 1980's stash of beads, when I was making jewelry myself.  In fact, I still have some necklaces that I made from them.  They are at least 35 years old, and possibly older.
