My quest for finding all those wonderful but sometimes elusive big round beads continues. I want to share with you some of my latest finds. It is my desire to get as many of these placed for sale in my shop as I can! All of these are 18mm Round faceted fire polished Czech Glass beads.
The first clear bead is faceted like the black ones on the end. The 2nd photo shows a fancy faceted crystal colored bead and the last crystal colored bead has unusual rectangular facets. The 4th bead is a deep, opaque black color. Black beads always have such a variety of uses and always seem to convey a feeling of elegance. Next to the black bead is a dark gray bead which is actually like an opaque black bead.I can't wait to get some of these in my shop!
The first green bead shown here has wonderful shades of green and black in a swirled pattern around the bead. These beads are opaque. The next 3 beads here are dark green, aqua, and cobalt. The last one is so unique with swirls of cobalt an white inside a crystal faceted bead.
Now for the browns and reds. The first three are shades of Topaz and are all transparent. That wonderful light tan bead is actually transparent but has an opaque quality. The last two are Garnet Red and Ruby Red, two colors any beader can't be without!

These beads are simply awesome! I received them in a batch of Czech Glass bulk beads and these came along for the ride. I have since tried to find them in other places to no avail. They are a rare find. I have kept out a couple for myself, but decided to share my find with others.
