Vintage (Size 16°-24°) SEED Beads

These tiny antique seed beads generally haven't been manufactured for a hundred years or so, and are consequently extremely rare and irreplaceable. We have a diminishing supply. Use them when you need fine resolution, or colors that aren't available today. If you use them wisely, they can make your reputation.

The beads in this section are sold loose or strung, depending on how we got them. Where a gram weight is indicated ("g"), the beads are loose. All others are still on their original hank threads, in bags weighing 2 to 3 grams.
