Lots Available: 47
Item No. (bin): G670 (eeb~)

3.4 cents

Glass

Country of origin:

Czech Republic

Size/shape:

Cubes, approximately 3.5mm from hole to hole and 4mm from corner to corner.

Colors/description:

Glass beads (probably clear) with a bronze-colored coating.  I don't know if the coating is actual bronze, but it's possible since bronze is not particularly expensive.

Hole size:

1mm (estimated).

Defects:

There are no significant defects, although if you look closely you might find some.  Very small beads always have some defects.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.

Comments:

I don't know if the surface is actually bronze, but it is probably some kind of metal.  I believe that the coating is fired onto the beads because I have never known it to come off (this or any other metallic glass bead).

 

When I restocked these beads in April, 2013, I discovered that the supplier's price had gone up, so I had to raise my price also.  The supplier is inconsistent in the way it prices bronze-colored beads.  Sometimes they make them expensive, and sometimes they make them cheap.  There's no logic to it.

I haven't carried these beads for two years because the supplier didn't have them in stock.

About the picture:  In May, 2013, I posted a new picture of these beads, but my picture came out with a little too much contrast.  Here is the supplier's picture for comparison:
