Melons- Chocolate and Mercury
6mm Czech Glass Beads with IHD .81mm
This bead starts out as a very dark chocolate (almost black) and then gets passed through a silver coating known as “mercury.” Fortunately, there is no real mercury in the coating, but this unusual finish gives it the look of antiquity we seem to crave when hoping to create unique designs. If you want to wire wrap, 20 gauge wire fits nicely. Made in the Czech Republic, these melon beads are the right size for so many designs, including Tricks to Laddering and Goddess Bracelets.
Sold on strands of 25 beads/ 6 inches in length.
