This is a hank of antique circa 1900’s French steel cut seed beads. They are actually made of steel and are fully faceted, making them super sparkly! They have the originally tag which says “p 4”, meaning size 4. They are black and come in 12 strand “mini” hanks.

Some other useful information…

There are 24 beads per inch.

French size No. 4 is equivalent to Czech 14/0 seeds beads.

One strand is 3 ¾” long.

There are 45 inches of beads per hank.

They have pretty large holes (considering their tiny size) and will fit on 22 gauge wire.

You will receive 1 ~ 12 strand hank.

If you don’t need a full hank, or would like a color sample, I also have a listing for 2 strands which I have posted a link to below:

Shipping Rate Note: All shipping rates are approximate. After mailing each package I double check to make sure no over payments were made. I always refund over payments of $1.00 or more. So, if shipping seems high and it actually is, you will be refunded!
