This is a big strand of 50 of my handmade lampwork glass beads which are leftovers from the bead sets I've been making for the last two or three months. I make hundreds of beads a week most of the time, and I am always putting extras aside. These beads are otherwise known as "orphans".

These are all perfectly good beads, so there are no seconds, no rejects aka "wonkies". They were put aside for various reasons - too small, too large, too much color, not enough color, the effect of too much heat that changes color, experiments, and a few made with glass I can't find again, etc.....

Measurements for most of the round beads are approx. 8-9mm x 11-12mm and they are all made of 1/16" mandrels.

***Please note: the tiny white flecks on the beads are from the photo lamp reflection***

I used to sell these on auction as 100 beads with a starting bid of 99 cents, and sit back and watch the bids fly up. It was very exciting! I have had ending bids as high as $368 with $250 being the average back in our better economic times. Currently my per bead prices are $1.75 - $2.50 each for the sets I sell in the shop. But I'm going to let these go at just $1.00 each, which is a sacrifice, but my Etsy bill is due! :)

Thank you for looking! :)

***SHIPPING*** The shipping cost for these beads is separate from other items in my shop due to the weight. If you order other beads from my shop along with these, I will re-weigh the package and refund any overpayment in shipping cost to your Paypal, and convo you when I do.
