These Metallic Steel beads are new from the Preciosa Ornela factory! They’re a beautiful color, somewhat lighter than Metallic Gunmetal. This is a great option for old style beadwork or for shading greyscale. Please note that this is a new metallic color and we have not been able to test the colorfastness. Metallic finish may rub off. Please use with caution.

Metallic beads have a metallic coating over the glass. These are beautiful option for adding some glimmer and glam to your bead project. Basic metallic finish can rub off or tarnish. To prevent tarnish, store beads in a dry, dark place. If these beads are on your powwow outfit, allow it to dry.

Charlotte Cuts have one or two facets per bead, which gives them a subtle sparkle. They are particularly popular for old style beadwork. They are fairly uniform in shape and size. They can be used in virtually any beaded project, including applique or flat stitch, lane stitch, peyote stitch, loomwork, bead weaving, bead stringing and jewelry making.

Size 13/0 Charlotte Cut Beads measure approximately 1.6-1.8mm. Sold strung on short hanks, consisting of 12 12-inch strands. Approximately 3,000 beads per hank. Made in the Czech Republic.
