A 12-colour collection of 3x5mm Czechoslovakian chunky slab glass seed beads.

Known as glass rocailles (French for ‘little stones’ and often referred to as seed beads) would enhance a host of jewellery-making projects.

Because of the uniqueness of this particular cut, the beads attract light and shimmer on costume outfits and jewellery.

They are generally regarded as staple bread and butter ingredients for jewellery construction and wildly used in embroidery work.

No doubt this collection we call our glazed collection represents all the colours we have available and 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 seed beads come in a host of colours and a variety of finishes.

Colours in this collection are aquamarine (35g), sapphire (40g), topaz (40g), slate grey (40g), mint (35g), grey (40g), hot pink (40g), pale pink (25g) bright purple (25g) clear translucent (10g), gunmetal (10g) and lime (10g), while bead finishes include opaque, iridescent, metallic, iris, silver-lined, translucent, matt, lustre, pearl, and satin.

These tiny glass beads which originated in Europe thousands of years ago, come with a generous 0.9mm 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.
