We bet you haven't seen beads like this before. These are vintage primitive cut glass beads from Czechoslovakia. These rare glass beads were produced the Old World way, long before there was precision machine cutting. Each bead is round cut with a textured surface almost like sand. This truly special bead is ruby red in color with a reflective luster coating. The hole size does vary slightly from 1.5-2mm. Perhaps you will want to string these primitive glass beads on some of your thicker string materials. We have this wonderful primitive bead available in a rainbow of colors. Each package contains 100 primitive cut beads.
