~ Some Czech beads are weighed out by the gram (such as the SuperDuo and MiniDuo beads). The quantity of beads per gram can vary depending on the finish & size of the beads. Below are some general approximations.

20 grams of SUPERDUOS - there are approximately 250 - 290 beads

10 grams of SUPERDUOS - there are approximately 130 - 145 beads

10 grams of MINIDUOS - there are approximately 195 - 225 beads
YES, as much as possible; however, (though we do our best to make images as true to color & quality as possible) colors & finishes may shift slightly for the following reasons:

LIGHTING can make the color appear darker or lighter/brighter. Our photography is done in a bright box with LED lights (meant to imitate natural day light). The color may look slightly different indoors or in low light conditions.

COMPUTER MONITOR settings, can cause hue & color to shift slightly from original image.

PRODUCTION LOTS - with 'Cottage Industry' production, Czech glass bead finishes & glass rod material can be slightly different when new production is made. I will inform of changes to colors within the description.
You may find this in a few beads per pack. Clogged holes do occasionally occur in pressed 2-hole Czech glass beads. This does not mean its a defective package of beads. The Cottage Industry bead pressing process does yield occasional beads with defective holes that can slip through during production.

The glass is molten and pressed with rods between to form the shape & holes. After cleaning/polishing, beads are then finished. The entire process for 1 batch of beads, start to finish, can take upwards to 1-2 weeks. You may find occasionally that one of the holes is clogged.

Please check all of the holes as you are stringing each bead. Checking the holes as you go is common practice among 2-hole beaders & makes for happier beading.
Czech glass beads are made of a base glass & sometimes one or two glass finishes applied to the base. Cutting or fire polishing processes for certain bead styles can also affect pricing.

* The price depends on the base glass (raw material), + the elements/chemicals needed to assist in the finishing process, & any specialty polishing/cutting processes there after.
~ For example some pink glass rods need a certain amount of Gold to achieve the hue of pink within the glass.

To the best of my knowledge I will inform you about which beads are solid glass colors & which finishes are on these beads in the details of each item.
Since certain colors or types of glass are difficult or expensive to produce Czech glass beads are often finished to achieve new looks. Glass finishing processes took hold in a time when the era of costume jewelry began (around the 20’s). Czech glass bead makers have been expanding upon these finishes ever since.

*** It is important to note that abrasives & chemicals in perfumes & lotions can cause these finishes to deteriorate quicker. Keep your seed beaded jewelry separate from other jewelry & don’t wear these pieces at times when you may cause damage to these finishes.

To the best of my knowledge I inform you about which beads are solid glass colors & which finishes are on these beads in the details of each item.
The name represents the glass + finish.
---- ei: Jet RED LUSTER

Jet - is referring to the base glass color.
RED LUSTER - refers to the finish. **

** The finish will often change the hue and appearance of base glass.
The color you think of when you hear the name, may not represent the actual color of the bead. ei: Jet RED LUSTER is not actually red at all. It is a metallic Green tone.

Distributor names may be used for consistency. The true color of the bead is usually best represented by the images of the beads. I try to represent the colors and textures of the glass as true to life as possible. Item details will inform if finish/color changes from a previous batch, & may describe color details beyond the name.
