These hand-woven "beaded beads" are individually made by hand in our Tuscan studio. Each bead consists of 30 size 8/0 Japanese seed beads expertly woven together and reinforced with the strongest beading thread known to man, forming an individual "cage" effect. Each bead is approx. 10mm in length, and has a 2mm hole. They are great for stringing, earring making, tassel making, etc.
