Instead of buying glass beads with a metallic finish, why not just use actual metal seed beads? The cute little beads are the same doughnut shape as rocailles, unlike metal rounds. You can just substitute these in your favorite bead weaving patterns. They are hollow, therefore nice and lightweight. There is a barely there seam on them, and because they are metal we suggest using Fireline as opposed to a regular nylon beading thread. Made in the USA. Qty: Tube of approx. 20 grams (about 380 beads).
