Iris Seed Beads for General Crafting (save 50%)
$3.00 On sale
These beads are something I've been working on today, and listing on our Bead Shack website (I know ... it's confusing ... because we own both Musthavecraft & Bead Shack!). The coating on these little glass beads is called IRIS. So they look kind of like an oil slick looks on the tarmac of the road when the sun hits it after rain. Rather clever really - I don't know how they make it! But it's very pretty.
Today's deal, you receive 2 bags for the price of 1. In other words, receive 40 grams instead of 20 grams.
Black Iris is the darkest picture.
These great quality GLASS seed beads measure approximately 3mm across and are great for all purpose use in projects for beading, craft, etc.
These seed beads are either from China or Taiwan, and are generally not the type of beads that you would try off loom bead weaving with, as they can be somewhat irregular in size, shape and the holes can vary too. However they are often used for loom weaving, but beware, the results will not be uniform. If you think of American Indian woven goods, or the necklaces with several ropes of seed beads holding a shell pendant, this is the style of beading that these beads are suited for.
20 grams of size 8/0 seed beads may bead up to approximately 1.4 metres.
100 grams of size 8/0 seed beads may bead up to approximately 7 metre
