You receive a mini hank that's 5" in length with 12 strands of beautiful six sided bugles. The length of each bead is 7-8mm. These are very old! Most likely made in Czechoslovakia. The unique metallic bronze color is a very hard find. These bugle beads are all temporarily strung in hanks for your beading and weaving convenience. Simply tip your needle through the string and take off what you need. This is one of the nice features of beads sold in hanks.
