4mm Glass Faceted Beads (3 Strands) - NAIDOC Aboriginal Supplies

$18.00 AUD

3 Strands of amazing glass beads in solid opaque colours for tribal, Koori and all Aboriginal beading needs.

Quantity per pack:
  • Red = 144 beads per strand (approximately)
  • Black = 134 beads per strand (approximately)
  • Yellow = 127 beads per strand (approximately) - this yellow is a different shade of yellow to our listing with 6mm beads, unfortunately this is all I could get.

    Size:  3m high from hole to hole, 4mm wide, with a threading hole of about 0.8mm to 1mm.

    Please Note:  The photos make the beads look larger than they are.  Please use your ruler to confirm the size - sometimes it's easy to look at the photo and buy beads because they look big, but in fact these are quite small beads.

    Faceted beads like these are often called rondelles, as they are flattish round beads.  They measure 3mm high by 4mm wide.  They can often be called 3x4mm beads, but to keep them clear on the website, we have called them 4mm as that's their common description.

    These glass beads have been cut with facets, then they are tumbled to take off the sharp edges, leaving a sparkling beautifully shaped bead.  They are so perfect for earrings, surrounding a focal bead on a necklace, stringing together for a bracelet, or you may be looking for something to give shine and reflection on a hanging item such as a suncatcher or windchime.  Whatever you use these beads for, they will always look great.

    These have been so hard to source in all the 3 colours in the same size glass bead.  If you've been hunting for a higher quality bead rather than plastic or wood, to make earrings and up market jewellery for your market stands or gifts, selling online etc, here you go!  Finally.

    We only have limited stock of these, and they are also listed on eBay, so if you don't find enough in stock here, please email us and we might have some on eBay still, that we can pull over into the website stock.

    These beads can be threaded on beading elastic, tigertail wire, or crafting wire


    This year's phrase for 2023 - FOR OUR ELDERS

    Once a year, Australia holds celebrations across the nation in the first week of July, to celebrate & recognise the history, culture & achievements of both Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander First Nation peoples.

    NAIDOC week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures & histories, & participate in celebrations of the oldest continuous living cultures on earth.

    NAIDOC is different to Reconciliation Week, which is to heal past damages.

    NAIDOC meaning:  An acronym for National Aborigines and Islands Day Observance Committee.

    Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples are the First Peoples of Australia. Aboriginal peoples inhabited the whole of Australia, and Torres Strait Islander peoples lived in the islands between Australia and Papua New Guinea.  Both have different flags.

    The Aboriginal Flag is divided horizontally into equal halves of black (top) and red (bottom), with a yellow circle in the centre. The black symbolises Aboriginal people. The yellow represents the sun, the constant re-newer of life. Red depicts the earth and peoples' relationship to the land.

    The Torres Strait Islander Flag has green panels at the top and bottom of the flag to represent the land and the central blue panel represents the sea. The black lines dividing the panels represent the Torres Strait Islander people. The centre of the flag shows a white dhari (dancer's headdress) which represents Torres Strait Islander culture.

    Our Torres Strait NAIDOC bead packs include 3 colours, which are green, blue & white.  We have not included black in our packs however if you would like to include them, please email us.
