About Hand-blown Cane Glass Beads, also referred to as Furnace Glass Beads

For the most part cane glass beads are sold by weight vs. by the piece.  The number of beads that you will receive in 1 ounce (28 grams), for example, varies depending on the shape and size of the bead and the size of the hole. Also  no two beads are exactly alike because each bead is individually hand cut. That is why there is usually a range given. We will be as specific as possible so you can buy just what you want for your designs and you'll know what you are getting for your money.

With our mixes, you'll always get a nice variety of beads.  In an ounce of like beads, they'll be close in size (unless stated otherwise ).  There will also be options where you can buy sets of  the same bead, in specified sizes, so you can get an exact number of the same bead.

There may be small price differences which just reflects the total weight of the beads in the set or the cost of human intervention to get them that way.  You will learn that we are extremely fair.  We will always treat you as we would want to be treated and that would be honestly and fairly.
