6mm snail shell-shaped beads.


Glass beads (probably white) with a lustrous dark-blue synthetic coating.

Hole size:

1mm (estimated).


The coating on Czech pearls is fairly thin, and I don't know how durable it is.  Inevitably a few pearls will be missing some coating around one of the holes, but those beads are often still usable.  Sometimes there are sharp little "tags" of coating sticking out around some of the holes; the best way to remove them is with cuticle nippers.  A few pearls may also have some anomalies in the coating, such as small lumps or indentations.

How photographed:

At the window in natural daylight.


I like the snail-shell shape, but one of my suppliers is running out of them, and the other charges a ridiculous price, so I get what colors I can.
