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...
A strand of seventeen 'unfancies' which is my way of saying plain beads. Shape-wise they're somewhere between a donut and a round, all hand-shaped (no roller or mould was used) and undecorated.
They're made in a very pretty transparent pale green which always reminds me of antique glass bottles.
Bead size/s: About 9.5mm to 10mm diameter x about 7.5mm. The strand measures just under 130mm long.
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.
My tumble-etching opinon on these particular beads: They'd look lovely, like sea glass.
