These are etched Czech glass, one holed, lentil beads. The hole is off center making these little glass beads perfect for dangling. You can also layer these lentil beads to get that wonderful fish scale look. These lentil beads have been etched on the surface and coated on the surface to give them a beautiful textured finish. The amount of metallic coating varies from one bead to another. Nice textured look! You don't see these beads everywhere. We love the etched look and try to carry lots of etched bead options. You will receive 50 etched lentil beads per lot.
