6mm snail shell-shaped beads.


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

Hole size:

1mm (estimated).


IMPORTANT:  Because these glass pearls have blue in them, they have faded over the years.  As of 2020, the color is a dark blue, as the description says, but it is a darker blue than the picture shows.  Consequently, I discounted the price considerably.  It's possible that these beads may eventually fade to black or perhaps a charcoal gray, but I don't think that will happen for many more years.  Please note that I stopped by glass pearls as soon as I realized that their colors fade, but I still have a considerable stock left, which I am selling at a discount.

Another consideration is that, when removing the beads from the strands, some beads lose their coating from around the hole.  As a result of that, I lowered the price even more, to 2 cents per bead.
