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, 10mm wide and has a 2mm hole. They are great for stringing, earring making, tassel making, etc. *Please note: These beads are made to order. Some minor variations may occur.
