starbazaar's Shop Announcement

Like this shop on facebook for special deals. contests, ideas, and updates on new stock, I bring in new items every single month!

This shop specializes in unique beads and findings with a rustic and historic flair. I have a special love for Arabian styles, due to family ties and my travels. Some special lines are Czech Glass, Mykonos Greek ceramic beads, my Old World Collection which is so possible you have to buy it when you see it before it is gone! Special Wood and Shell Beads, Spacers in Brass, copper, Silver, and Bronze, and African Trade Beads!

Not sure about about sizing? beads are measured in millimeters, 1mm is very small. a regular lentil is typically 5-6mm and a grain of couscous is about 1mm. 1 inch is about 24mm. these are estimates for scale. see the chart below for more detailed info.
