We call a subtle mixed-coloured collection of 4.6mm glass Size 8/0 seed beads our ‘Chintzy Blue’ collection.

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 are 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 fabric or used to dress up a fashionable piece of clothing.  

The ‘Chintzy Blue’ collection colours include Blue, Cyan, Capri, Cerulean, Navy, Aqua, Sapphire, Cobalt, and Azure, while finishes include opaque, iridescent, metallic, iris, silver-lined, translucent, matt, pearl, lustre and satin.

These tiny glass seeds which originated in Europe thousands of years ago, come with a generous 2mm hole capable of accommodating many 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, 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.

Larger discounted quantities are available on request, while stocks last.
