These wheel shaped round beads are flat on top and bottom, and the hole goes through the centre through the shortest length. The patterning around the sides looks very Egyptian to me! A really cute bead! I would also call this shape a rondelle.
Measurements: 9mm long x 13mm wide bead with a 1.5mm threading hole
Quantity per pack: 10
This whole range of vintage Bohemian look beads is from stock we scored at a warehouse clearance haul years and years ago! In recent years some of the styles of beads in this range have been reproduced in cheaper plastic materials. You will notice the difference in the quality if you compare the feel of the bead, as well as the weight. Ours are made from plastic, with a beautiful matte metallic coating and are classed as Vintage Beads.
