Here we have a six coloured collection of 2.1mm aurora borealis (AB) Czechoslovakian Size 11/0 glass seed beads.

Each colour is packaged separately for your convenience.

Also referred to as glass rocailles (French for ‘little stones’) these seed beads belong in your bead box collection because they will enhance all kinds of jewellery making projects.

They are the bread and butter ingredients for all kinds of jewellery construction and wildly used in embroidery work.

This collection would make a healthy addition to your bead collection, and a must have to embellish and add sensational dimensions to your creativity.

Only limited by your imagination, wonderful jewellery items such as bracelets, necklaces and earrings can be created; or the beads can be embroidered onto pieces of fabric or used to dress up a fashionable piece of clothing.  

The six colours and their quantities in this collection comprise: clear (45g), black AB (15g), flame (15g), amethyst (45g), turquoise (15g), topaz (15g), while other finishes in the Size 11 range include iridescent, metallic, iris, opaque, translucent, matt, lustre, pearl and satin.

These tiny glass seeds which originated in Europe thousands of years ago, come with a 0.60mm hole capable of accommodating a multitude of threading materials including tigertail, craftline, cotton bead thread or plain old fishing line.

In recent times seed beads are now being manufactured in India, Japan, China and Taiwan, however, the quality, the finish and the colours are inferior compared to their European counterparts (with the exception of Japan who, not unlike the beadmakers of Czechoslovakia, have been able to master the essential manufacturing skills required to manufacture these perfect ‘little stones’.

The accompanying photos illustrate what to expect in your order. Please also be aware, that the beads have been enlarged to illustrate detail.
