IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ: If you are outside the UK - including all EU countries - you may have to pay import duties, VAT, other tax, postal service handling fees, or other fees, at your end. Normally your country's postal service will contact you to arrange payment of these fees before they will deliver your package to you. I am not responsible or liable for these taxes or fees - you are. Please check with your local postal service or relevant body to see what the current import value thresholds are where you live, and what taxes and/or fees you may be liable for.
Back to the beads...
Five beads with lilac cores, encased with a thick layer of transparent lavender. The beads are decorated with purple spots. The strand also includes eight lilac spacer beads.
Note: Lavender-coloured glass contains neodymium which can cause it to shift colour depending on the light. These beads were photographed indoors in natural daylight but under certain artifical lights the may take on a bluer hue.
Bead size/s: About 12.5mm diameter x 8.5mm. Spacers are about 8mm diameter x 5mm.
Hole size: Approximately 1.8mm
Kiln annealed and cleaned
Note: Although I have captured the beads' colours as best as I can, different screen and monitor settings vary and as such the colours of the beads may appear slightly different in real life than they do on your computer or device. In particular, Apple devices tend to ramp up the reds so please bear this in mind when viewing beads that are red, pink, purple etc.
Prefer the satin finish look?
Tumble-etching is available for these beads at no extra cost.
If you like, I can tumble-etch these beads to a soft, satin finish. This process will dull the glass, making any transparent parts appear frosted and translucent.
If you'd like some of the beads etched and some left shiny, that's fine too. Just select the etching option and then in the notes at checkout let me know which ones or how many you'd like etched.

The tumble-etching process is not reversible.
