Size #5 (that's 2 x 11mm). Made in Czechoslovakia. There are approximately 525 bugle beads per hank. These beads have a hex (6 side) cut. They are transparent with a pearly shimmery luster finish. Very nice bugles at a fantastic price. 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.
