Lots Available: 20
Style No. (bin): G2116 (dob~e)

Style: G2116
Beads per lot: 100
Cost per bead: 3.8 cents
Bead material: Glass
Country of origin: Czech Republic
Size/shape: 5mm round with flutes (i.e., accordion-like grooves).
Colors/description: Bronze-coated glass beads with a mottled grayish or gray-blue luster coating on top of the bronze.
Hole size: 1mm (estimated).
Defects: The picture revealed a couple malformed beads.  Also, the picture revealed that the beads seem to vary slightly in size from one to the next.  However, when the actual beads are viewed with the eyes, they appear fairly uniform.
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight (the supplier's picture is also provided).
Comments: In my opinion, the combination of bronze and a grayish-luster coating doesn't "work" very well.  The combination just seems odd to me.  However, if you like unusual or moody colors, you might like these beads.  My picture is marred by a lot of light reflections, but is nonetheless more accurate than the supplier's picture.

Caleb's notes: If they sell well, I'll restock them.  Otherwise, no.
