These beads make great bracelets because they sit really nicely, making them comfy to wear.

Bead size/s: About 15mm diameter
Hole size: Approximately 1.8mm
Kiln annealed and cleaned
Note: Although I have captured the beads' colours as best as I can, different screen and monitor settings vary and as such the colours of the beads may appear slightly different in real life than they do on your computer or device. In particular, Apple devices tend to ramp up the reds so please bear this in mind when viewing beads that are red, pink, purple etc.
Prefer the satin finish look?
Tumble-etching is available for these beads at no extra cost.
If you like, I can tumble-etch these beads to a soft, satin finish. This process will dull the glass, making any transparent parts appear frosted and translucent.

The tumble-etching process is not reversible.
My tumble-etching opinon on these particular beads: They would look OK but I think they'd lose something - the pale aqua looks so lovely as it is with the light shining through it and you get a pretty sparkle-gleam through the edges of the lentils.
